Where’s the Shot Emoji?

March 20th 2016

When you’re having steak, you’re gonna get some wine (🍷) preferably a Cabernet Sauvignon. When you’re up on your March Madness bracket, it’s time for a beer (🍺) or even two beers (🍻). When you’re chilling in the Bahamas, there’s a tropical drink (🍹)… when you’re having sushi, there’s sake (🍶). And when you’re sipping a cosmo at Onieal’s, well there’s the cocktail emoji (🍸).

But what about when you’re at a bar doing shots? What do you say?

That’s right. Believe it or not, there is no shot emoji. Check your iPhone if you don’t believe us. It’s not there.

We want to change that. We will launching a petition shortly to add the shot emoji to Unicode. We hope that next time St Patrick’s Day roles around, you’ll be able to cheers appropriately, in emoji. Stay tuned here for more information.

P.S. We meant to post this on St Patrick’s Day, but after all the drinks, it might not have come out right. Just kidding!
