You can choose to play it in a crowded party somewhere or right in the closed setting of your home for a more intimate vibe. You can play some enticing music to set the mood and complement your experience.
Are you a beginner or a pro?
Whether you’ve played the game before or not can be crucial in determining how you should be playing it. The beginner level goes like this. Your partner should hold a lime wedge between his/her teeth and some salt shot should be sprinkled over their belly button. Now you must drink the shot from a shot glass, then lick the salt of your partner’s belly and suck on the lemon slice in their month.
If you are someone who has already tried the game in the past and is comfortable with it then the advanced level works like this. For this version, you do not need a shot glass. This is more exciting as you’ll be drinking the alcohol right off each other’s bodies. So make your partner lie down on a flat surface like bar, bed or table, place the lime in their mouth as in the previous variant, then pour some booze into the concave portion of their belly as in the belly button and drink up the liquor straight, lick the salt and grab the wedge of lime.
Now, there’s a new game you must be waiting to try out. So go grab a bottle of chardonnay, your partner and get right on it. But don’t blame us if you have mixed drinks about feelings.
