Online, you’ll find quite a few variations on the B-52 shot cocktail. 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.
