About: Welcome to the only Online Bartending Resource you will ever need to visit again. From Bartending Basics, Bartending Tips, Tricks and Insider Secrets to Drink Recipe Video Tutorials to Bar Tricks, Bar Jokes... - The B-52 shooter is a classic.  It seems to be one of the only shooters that came from the older generation that the younger generation still order (maybe because its the only one they know).  Although the finished result may look complicated to attain, its not that hard as long as you know how to do it.  


*Grand Marnier
*Bailey's Irish Cream

Here's a little tip on remembering the ingredients for the B-52 shooter:  think about it as one mean shooter with the acronym KGB (for Kahlua, Grand Marnier and Baileys) BUT after you use the acronym to remember the ingredients, you must remember that to layer properly, you have to put the Kahlua first, then the Baileys and then the Grand Marnier on top.  

Layering shots is not difficult but it takes a steady hand and a little know-how. There are basically two methods to layering shots. First is to slowly pour the layering alcohol on top of the heavier alcohol by pouring it through a spout...slowly..down the side of the shot glass. The second method is to invert a small spoon or bar mixing spoon, placing the tip inside the shot glass and pouring the layering alcohol on top of the spoon.

As you'll see in this video, the layering was not perfect, the Grand Marnier mixed slightly with the Bailey's.  Obviously the triple layers are strictly for looks as it all goes down the same hole.
