At your next party, you NEED to serve these party time B52 shots. Like for reals! They are so good.
It’s the party time B52 shot recipe!
Now, I know others get the last layer to separate so you can see the line between the two liqueurs but I have never been able to do that with this shot. And if you’ve been reading my blog for a bit, you will know that I am all for imperfect things and I don’t shy about showing those imperfections.
Nothing is perfect and that goes for this drink. If you know the trick, please share it with me.
So, this is what the drink looks like every time I make it. I’ve tried putting the ingredients in the refrigerator, I’ve tried it at room temperature and looks like that every time.
I say, “Who cares!”
Besides, it tastes the same as a perfect one!
More shots, because you can never have enough:
Only 3 ingredients: Kahlúa, Baileys Irish Cream and Grand Marnier!
How to mix the B52 shot recipe
Step 1: The trick to a layered cocktail is to start with the heaviest liqueur. In this drink, the Kahlúa is the heaviest, so I pour it into the shot glass, which I fill 1/3 of the way.
Now comes the fun part. You need a spoon. I use an ice coffee (or iced tea) spoon for this drink because the shot glass is narrow and the spoon has to fit inside it.
Step 2: The second heaviest liqueur is the Baileys Irish Cream. Pour the liqueur slowly over the back of the spoon.
See? It helps keep the layers separate!
Step 3: Now for the lightest liqueur, the Grand Marnier! Also the culprit of the non-separation! I use the spoon just as I did for the Baileys!
I couldn’t help myself. I had to drink the shot. It’s for quality control. Truly. It’s always either for research or for quality control.
I hope you enjoyed this B52 shot recipe!
It’s such a yummy drink and will get any party started.
And as always, may all your dishes/drinks be delish!
