Buttery Nipple Shot Recipe

Buttery Nipple

Perhaps one of the most famous mixed shots around, the Buttery Nipple can be a hilarious order for a friend or just to throw back on a night when Jager Bombs aren’t quite appropriate.

The drop of grenadine is optional but certainly adds the “nipple” namesake to the shot.

For even more effect when serving a Buttery Nipple, layer the 2 alcohols and float the drop of Grenadine on top. All you need is a Butterscotch liqueur and your preferred variety of Irish Cream. We always prefer Bailey’s.
