How do you make a B-52?

My very favorite bar drink !


I like raspberry instead of the amaretto. Looks the same though. So its a great exchange. When I make it myself . . . . .

    2 shots Khalua

    2 shots Baileys (original)

    1 shot Brandy

    2 Large scoops vanilla or chocolate ice cream (my own addition) must be just soft.

    Lots of ice .

    Very tall glass and enjoy xx

    Resorted back to because 1 of the liquers changes often. (This was my fave site while I was Bartending!)

    1/3 shot Kahlua® coffee liqueur Pour in first.

    1/3 shot amaretto almond liqueur Pour in second.

    1/3 shot Bailey's® Irish cream Pour in last.

    The trick to this shot is a steady hand and pouring the heaviest liquer into the glass first. Sometimes puring the liquer over the back of a spoon very slowly helps to maintain the layered effect. If you aren't able to keep the layers it still tastes good it's just not as pretty. Happy New Year!

    Hmmm, things must have changed since I last visited a bar.

    The one that an old timer like me know of is

    1/2 oz Kahlua

    1/2 oz Bailey's

    1/4 oz Grand Marnier

    Poured in that order into a tall shot glass in visible layers.

    Carefully layer ingredients, in order, into a shot glass; kahlua, amaretto, then irish cream.
