Sometimes there are signs in life. First we say this lovely layered drink over at Savoring Every Bite. Then we saw this B-52 recipe below in our new drink book, The Ultimate Cocktail Book. We figured it was about time we tried our hand at layering a shot. Well, I did anyway. By the time, Greg arrived home, I had ruined two drinks. The only clean, clear glass left was this free plastic shot glass from Woodford Reserve. (Thankfully, the Grand Marnier is the last layer, and I didn’t waste any of that in my failed attempts.) His hand was steadier than mine. The trick is a very slow pour when layering. Greg does have a slow hand and an easy touch.
- 1/2 measure Kahlua* (see note below)
- 1/2 measure of Bailey’s Irish Cream*
- 1/2 measure Grand Marnier
Pour the Kahlua in the bottom of a tall shot glass. Slowly pour in the Bailey’s using the back of the spoon. Pour the Grand Marnier over the top of the Bailey’s using the same method.
