For the most delicious happy hour ever, make tequila shot doughnut holes

Attention: Tequila shot doughnut holes are a real thing with real booze and the real ability to make you tipsy. What more could you possibly want out of a doughnut?

Last year I remember seeing deep-fried tequila shots in my Twitter feed and secretly wishing that the genius responsible for them would move in next door and become my best friend in the whole entire world.

Since then, Amy at Oh, Bite It! continues to create ridiculously delicious food mashups that make me wish for new neighbors even more. Today, I present you her tequila shot doughnut holes.

Now, I like doughnut holes as much as the next guy, but fill those babies full of tequila, and we may have a slight problem on our hands. Can't stop... Won't stop... Then it's a nonstop train to bad karaoke and waking up with doughnut glaze in my hair.

According to Amy, the alcohol stays put through the deep-frying process, and you can definitely taste and feel the tequila. But if you want to wash these down with a shot, I'm not here to judge. It's called happy hour for a reason.

Not only are these beauties infused with plenty of tequila, but they're drenched in a lime glaze and sprinkled with salt. Didn't I say she was a genius?

Now go visit Oh, Bite It! for the full recipe. There's no time like the present for boozy doughnuts.
