This is my delicious butterball cocktail recipe! So easy and super tasty!
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 but I haven’t made one in a while. I’ll have to rectify that neglect.
As I wrote the above sentence, I flashed back on a memory I had. When we go to my sister Robyn’s for a holiday or a gathering, I can be counted on to bring the alcohol.
I know you aren’t surprised since I talk about cocktails and alcohol a lot.
Back to my story. My sister Robyn’s kids are all older now, but when they were younger and just barely over the drinking age, I use to school them in the different types of alcohol. And show them the difference between good and great alcohol.
Well, this one time, I was talking about tequila. I placed some Sauza, Cuervo Gold and some Patron Silver tequila on the kitchen island. I poured some Patron in some shot glasses and passed around the bottle of Cuervo gold so they could sniff it. Then I had them pick up a shot glass and sniff the Patron so they could smell the difference.
So, there I was prattling away, singing the praises of premium tequila when a family friend (who really is like my nephew) made a snarky remark. So I said, “Do you want to try this or not? Be quiet and let me teach you something.”
Me, not him.
I still sometimes do that. In fact I did this recently when my sister was here from the south.
People are usually kind and indulge me by sniffing my liquor.
That sounded weird. It is weird.
On to the recipe.
The ingredients for the Butterball Cocktail and the Mixing
We have 3 ingredients: butterscotch schnapps, Bailey’s Irish cream and milk.
Let’s get started.
First, I fill my cocktail shaker half way with ice.
Next, I measure out 2 ounces of butterscotch schnapps. Have you smelled this delicious liquor? Oh my, totally delicious! Oh no, here I go again with the sniffing.
I pour the schnapps in the cocktail shaker.
Next up, I measure out 2 ounces of Bailey Irish cream.
I pour it in the shaker.
Time for the last ingredient. I pour out 2 ounces of milk.
Into the shaker it goes!
I cap the shaker and shake it at least 10 times. I strain it into a martini glass.
Time to look at it closer.
Pretty isn’t it? I love milky drinks!
Now for the vertical view.
I hope you enjoyed this recipe.
