Sure, tequila may be the shot of choice on this very special day, but variety is the spice of life, and if you want to throw a little Jim Beam into the mix, nobody is going to be mad. Nobody.
2. Don't forget a few limes
You wouldn't want to find yourself holding a perfectly adorable bottle of tequila and have nothing to chase it down with, right? Just think about what a travesty that would be, you guys.
3. A few chocolate treats couldn't hurt
This is a party, after all. Go crazy in the candy aisle, and fill up on whatever sweet treats you want to make this the piñata of your dreams.
4. Fill your piñata until it's ready to pop
Now that you've spent so much time collecting your materials, it's time to put this baby together. Stuff your piñata to the brim, and get ready to let the good times roll. Feel free to add in salt, aspirin, or any other drinking-time accessories you want to make this the most perfect piñata experience of your life.
