B52 Shot – Best Recipe For Mouth Watering Classic Layered B52 Cocktail

B52 shot, or sometimes also noted as B-52 shot is a popular cocktail going around at the moment because of its visual appeal and its delicious taste. So, not many cocktails do this double and hence, B52 cocktail is one of a kind.

When we trace back to its history, many suggest it to be after the B-52 bomber plane, but it actually isn’t.

And the cocktail shot was created in the 1970s and the bartender who invented it seemed to have named it after the famous B-52 band. 

Similar to the Duck Fart Shot, this classic cocktail is a layered cocktail shot, with Coffee Liqueur, Irish Cream and Orange Liqueur all going into the shot glasses. 

Just imagine the taste of the combination of Coffee + Cream + Orange. Isn’t it mouth watering already?

The shot became an instant hit that led to several variations later on in the coming years, as usual with any hit recipe.

Ok, let us now have a look into the B52 Shot recipe.
