Comprised of equal parts Bailey's Irish Cream, coffee liqueur, and orange liqueur, the cocktail combines the sweetness and creaminess of Bailey's with the deep, roasted flavors of coffee liqueur and the sweet, bitter complexity of the orange liqueur. The result is a decadent, multi-layered drink often served in a shot glass and appreciated as much for its visual appeal—a striking separation of colors—as for its smooth, indulgent taste. The B-52 is a favorite for those looking to enjoy a drink with both aromatic appeal and a comforting, dessert-like character.

Method

Serves 1 · Takes 3 minutes
Pour the Kahlúa into the shot glass
Carefully add Baileys to create a layer on top
Then carefully pour Grand Marnier onto that as the final layer and serve
~ If you're too scared to drink it while with a straw while alight, put out the fire by smothering it quickly with your hand (don't try to blow it out). If you do want to attempt the straw, make sure to move fast, otherwise it can result in injury. ~
