There is not a drink called Chicken Shot. At least not what I could find. But in my mind, I thought there was a drink. There should be a drink. Maybe it's because shot has the same vowel sound as pox.
This painting is part of my Animal Spirit series. Spirits can be ghosts or the liquid containing ethanol and water that is distilled. Animal spirits can be guides to understanding personality or the future. Or, in this case, Animal Spirits are drinks associated with an animal, feathered, finned, scaled, or furred.
My Etsy shop has cards and prints of this painting.
