This drink has been around since the late 1980s, and its name is said to be a cheeky nod to its risqué origins. Its rich and indulgent flavor profile makes it a favorite among those with a sweet tooth, while the addition of Sambuca adds a subtle kick to the drink. As with most layered cocktails, it is best to serve the Dirty Nipple in a shot glass, allowing the two ingredients to mix together for a delicious and satisfying sip. Although it may have an edgy name, the Dirty Nipple is a fun and tasty cocktail that is sure to delight those who enjoy a bit of indulgence in their drinks.
