These measurements are approximate. It's okay to pour by eye!
Tips for Making the Eggnog Shot:
  • If you are going to layer this shot, either use a cocktail spoon or regular iced tea spoon - for the thin, tall shot glass, I have to use the iced tea spoon because the cocktail spoon is too wide to fit in the glass
  • Always place the spoon bowl side up in the glass, against the side
  • Using a pourer controls the pour, which is critical to layering any shot. But if you do use a pourer, just know that you will have to eyeball your quantities because in that case, they’re coming straight out of the bottle, unmeasured
  • As with all layered shots, you need to place the heaviest liquor on the bottom and work your way up to the lightest
