Drinking this butterball cocktail is like drinking your dessert! Its creamy, buttery taste is so delicious you’ll want to have more than one, so remember to sip!
I conceived this cocktail because I wanted to make a martini-like drink from the layered shot I have made in the past with the same name. I still make the butterball shot. In fact, it is one of my favorites and in my opinion, the tastiest of layered shots!
I know you won’t be surprised since I talk about cocktails and alcohol a lot, but did you know that I’m apt to smell liquor; that is, if I won’t be caught and look like a crazy person?
Have you smelled butterscotch schnapps before? Sooooo good. Another great-smelling liquor is caramel vodka. Glorious.
I can also be obnoxious by making people smell liquor that I think smells delicious. I know: weird. But people seem to like it and they are really kind to indulge me.
I also enjoy having people smell the difference between a low quality, a mid level and a premium liquor! There really is a difference.
You didn’t know that about me, did you? Aren’t you glad you know now?
Okaaaaay. Moving on.

- Use whatever dairy product you prefer. I use the half and half in this recipe when I’m in the mood for a richer tasting cocktail, but I have made this cocktail with milk when I want a lighter drink and with cream when I want to really be decadent.
- Even though Baileys has cream in it and if you don’t want a lot of dairy in the shot, you can also use a non-dairy ‘milk’ by using hemp, soy or almond milk.
- For an even lighter tasting cocktail, substitute RumChata for Baileys Irish Cream.
