Irish Flag Shot Cocktail

This pretty shot is not only colorful but it is delicious! It represents the Irish flag and I believe even leprechauns will like it!

  • .50 ounce green Creme de Menthe
  • .50 ounce Baileys Irish Cream
  • .50 ounce Grand Marnier


  • Fill your shot glass ⅓ with Creme de Menthe
  • Use your spoon and turn the bowl up, slowly pour Baileys Irish cream over the bowl so it layers. Fill it so it is ⅔ full
  • Use your spoon again and slowly pour Grand Marnier until it reaches close to the top of the shot glass
  • Take the shot glass and down the contents
  • Smile
  • Enjoy



Tips for making this layered shot:
  • If you are going to layer any shot, either use a cocktail spoon or regular iced coffee teaspoon - for the thin, tall shot glass, I have to use the iced coffee teaspoon 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. The slower you pour the alcohol, the better.  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
