Online, you’ll find quite a few variations on the B-52. The classic recipe layers Kahlua, then Bailey’s Irish Cream, and then Grand Marnier on top. The flavor of a B-52 is described by some bartenders as a little like caramel. It’s a subtle blend of coffee, orange, cream and whiskey flavors in which no single flavor stands out much above the others. The B-52 really deserves to be savored alone – it’s a dessert all on its own.

B52 Shooter recipe: Kahlua, Bailey's & Grand Marnier layered

Recipe

  • 1/2 ounce Kahlua (or Tia Maria)
  • 1/2 ounce Bailey’s Irish Cream
  • 1/2 ounce Grand Marnier (some people recommend amaretto instead – it’s also much cheaper than GM!)

Pour the Kahlua into a shot glass, then layer the Bailey’s, and then the Grand Marnier.
