    More than likely you will get drunk off of it. I did. Never before in my life have I gotten drunk off of 1 shot, until I did the Bob Marley. I say go for it anyways. It's kind of like a right of passage.

    This depends on the way it's made. Without a heaping helping of overproof rum (a must for me), it's about as strong as 1 beer, tops.

    It is very pretty, but TERRIBLE to drink. It is very strong. I can't imagine one shot would leave you drunk, but coupled with a few red stripe and/or fruity drinks and yes! I had one and it gave me heartburn for 3 hours and I never get heartburn. But it's Jamaica and you have to try it once!

    It's not a good tasting shot for one, and it is balanced between a no alcohol ingredient, a light alcohol ingredient, and an ultra-strong alcohol ingredient. It's probably no more total alcohol content than a shot of vodka or less. I did 4 in a row one time, becasue once one girl saw me do it, and she along with other people kept asking me to do one with their spouses, so they could get a picture. I was pretty good after that, but not sloppy. I'm also 6'2", 200 lbs and can hold my own in the bar department!

    Honestly, I didn't find the Bob Marley shots to be "knock you on your butt strong." I do my share of drinking while on vacation (guess I'm a Medium Drinker??).
    I've heard people remark on how strong these shots are, so I guess I'm an exception.
    Anyway, I believe they are made-up of Grenadine (red), Cream De Menthe (green) Galiano?? (yellow) and 151 Proof Rum for the top.
    They're not very tasty so you'll down them quick!
    Enjoy and Have great vacation!

    It is pretty potent, really depends how much you're used to drinking! My Husband can handle them, for me I would rather have a shot of Tequila, and that's going some! Worth trying once!

    Well, that depends. Sometimes the "shot" is a drink served in a martini glass. That's a pretty strong drink. We once saw a guy from Louisiana consume three of them in quick succession; that was an scene at the pool that I will NEVER forget.

    Sometimes the Bob Marley is served in a smaller glass, and we've also seen the drink served in a cordial glass (which my husband and I refer to as a "Baby Bob"). Whether it will be enough to get you drunk depends upon the size of the drink they happen to be serving when you order it. If you don't want to get drunk, order one of the smaller sizes.

    I know everything, and I'm always right (just ask my husband).

    I respect the "Bob Marley" Shot so much that I have a tattoo of one. We finish each night with a "Bob"...be home soon for some "Bob".
    Peace,

    Everyone is different, so it is very hard to answer your question, but they are pretty strong.

    I agree - try a "Ziggy" instead! It's a smaller version and lots of the ladies drink them instead of the Bob. I always say it's like nail polish remover, gasoline and rum - YUCK! But a "must do"!

    I will tell you about our experience with Bob Marley shots. I left CN for about 5 hours to visit a local school and my husband stayed at the resort. By the time I returned, my husband and others at the pool bar had enjoyed 4 or 5 shots. When I went to dinner that night I had to ask for a table for "one."
    Does that give you a clue about how my husband did with them? I have had them from time to time but only one a day and I have never had a problem. I think they taste like cough medicine so one is enough for me!!

    Sorry to say but I think you need to try it at least once. If you are not a heavy drinker, no problem, just don't drink anything before or after it and you should be fine. Actually, you might be unconscious afterwards so no problem there. I do drink and will admit it put a hurting on me but doing it twice within half an hour probably didn't help However, when returning back to the states I could proudly say that I had a Marley shot, yet what happened afterwards is a secret only my wife and I know...maybe....I don't recall a 2 hour period but am sure all was good.

    No big deal, it is something you must do, they are strong but the BIG issue is the taste. Kinda a mixture of a bad cough syrup mixed with kerosene. When were at CSA back in 2010 our bartender made ours in a medium size glass and cut thick straws to size. On three, all eight of us sucked them down and had our Ting chasers at the ready. You should do it, but only one per day is my suggestion, enjoy.

    btw, we were watching as a guy talked of breaking the record? His friends carried him back to his room, we heard later that he did survive

    IIRC, the unofficial "record" is 14...I've only managed 12, but was able to make the manager's cocktail parts, dinner, and show at CSS.

    Oh, I remember that day well, yes I did survive and yes it was 14. I didn't drink anymore of them for the rest of the vacation. OK, I did one more the night of the outdoor dinner party, Miguel made me do it...I swear!! They were a lot bigger than the one shown in the photo above, mine were served in a martini glass containing grenadine, green creme d'menthe, grand mariner, overproof, lit on fire, all sucked through a straw before the fire melted the plastic...ughhhh. I guess its all in who make it! Thanks Adrian!

    The Bob Marley shots are not as strong as they taste. They have a mint-fresh taste. It does not overwhelm you if you are a strong drinker.

    That is too funny, when we were there (CSA) in 2010 we were also told the record was 14, I have no interest whatsoever of trying to break it, next visit in 8 days 17 hours 51 min 28 sec.....not that I am counting or anything

    Have you ever tasted jet fuel? To me (at least) that's what I think it tastes like. A Bob Marley is the 1st drink I have when we arrive at CSA. I might have a couple more during our stay, but it's not something I would drink several of. It's kind of a "welcome to Jamaica" drink and you should at least try it once, make sure you get a picture of you drinking it because the face you make after is priceless!! As far as getting you drunk I think depends on your alcohol tolerance. I'am not a very big drinker and it really didn't affect me at all, but I would still down for a few minutes after to let it settle. Have fun and enjoy there are so many tasty drinks to try.
