The B-52 is visually intriguing due to the nature of it being a layered shot. In fact, it was the first layered shot we ever had the pleasure of enjoying.
The history of the B-52 shot is called into question a bit by Liquor.com, with the media outlet stating that the B-52 might not have been named after the plane, but rather the band, The B-52s. You may recall them from the 1989 hit song, Love Shack. Either way, the name is a good one for this shot. Have enough of them and you will be bombed in no time.
- Duck Fart Shot
- Flaming B-52
- Bar Spoon
- Shot Glass
|Bailey's Irish Cream||0.5oz|

Substitute Ingredients & Variations
- You can substitute the Bailey’s Irish Cream for Carolan’s, Brady’s, Kavanaugh, or any other Irish Cream
- You can substitute the Kahlua for any coffee liqueur
Add the Kahlua
Pour 1/2 oz of coffee liqueur into an empty shot glass. We prefer to use Kahlua.
Add the Bailey's
Layer in the 1/2 oz of Irish Cream. We prefer Bailey's. Layering takes some practice to get the hang of. Using a bar spoon will make your life easier. That said, it can be done with utensils that you have in your kitchen.
Add the Grand Marnier
Layer in the 1/2 oz of Grand Marnier to top off the B-52.
Serve the Shot
You're finished making the shot. Enjoy.
