This cocktail is believed to have originated in the early 1980s in Banff, a town in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. The B-53 gets its name from B-52, a similar cocktail that also contains coffee liqueur, but with Irish cream instead of sambuca. The addition of sambuca adds a subtle anise flavor to the drink, while the orange liqueur provides a sweet and citrusy balance. When the ingredients are poured in the correct order, they form distinct layers, making for an aesthetically pleasing presentation. The B-53 is often served as a shot and is a favorite among coffee and liqueur enthusiasts for its rich and complex flavor profile.
