  • Pour Kahlúa in the bottom of the shot glass
  • Place cocktail spoon bowl side up touching the inside of the glass but above the Kahlúa
  • Slowly pour Frangelico over the bowl of the spoon
  • Place cocktail spoon back in the glass and slowly pour Baileys over the bowl on top of the Frangelico
  • Pick up glass and shoot the contents
  • Smile
  • Enjoy


The amounts of the ingredients are approximate as I eyeball the liquor as I pour and not measure it out.
This recipe is for one shot.  Just double, triple or quadruple the ingredients to make more.
Tips for making the snickers shot:
  • Whenever you are pouring a layered shot, you need to put the heaviest liquor on the bottom and work your way up in weight.  So Kahlúa is the heaviest, then Frangelico, then Baileys
  • One tool you definitely need is either a regular teaspoon or a cocktail spoon. I prefer the cocktail spoon since it has a wider bowl
  • I also like to use pourers like you see in bars or restaurant bars because it controls the flow of liquor and allows you to pour slowly
  • When layering, place your spoon bowl side up in the glass, but above the liquid
  • Measure how many ounces are in your shot glasses - and adjust the amount of ingredients accordingly
  • Believe it or not, the tall shot glass is the same size as the shorter ones
