ABC Syringe

Syringe Shooters Deliver Just What the Doctor Ordered for the New Year

Syringe Shots

Many believed that 2012 would spell the end of the world as we know it. However, we’re all still here, alive and kicking, with the new year upon us in just a matter of days. I have a lot to be thankful for this year, and I’m sure you do, too. But maybe we should all be most thankful for the fact that we’ve got another year ahead of us to make things right and do what we’ve always wanted to do so we wouldn’t have any regrets when or if the world does finally end.

The New Year is traditionally greeted with a bang, both indoors and outdoors. Firecrackers take care of the latter, while the former is comprised of free-flowing drinks and parties all around with the people who matter the most. What better way to toast to a new year than by drinking controlled amounts of booze in these Syringe Shooters–just like your doctor ordered. They come in a trio of syringes for thrice the fun and triple the merriment.

These Syringe Shooters are sold in sets of three for $15.95.
