Why do I gag when I take shots?

You're more likely to gag on a shot if you exhale through your mouth before taking the shot, or if you hold the shot in your mouth before swallowing. Breathing through your nose doesn't make you likely to gag. Breathing through your nose will make you taste the shot more, and you don't take shots for the taste.

What is a shot of water called?

A shot of whisky, tequila, or vodka, when served neat in a shot glass, is often accompanied by a "chaser" (a mild drink consumed after a shot of hard liquor) or a "water back" (a separate glass of water). These terms commingle as well; it is common in many locales to hear a "beer back" ordered as the chaser to a shot.
