  • Shot Glass



Prepare the Shot Glass:

  • Start by placing a clean shot glass on a flat surface. This will make it easier to layer the ingredients accurately.

Add the Butterscotch Schnapps:

  • Pour 1/2 oz of Butterscotch Schnapps into the shot glass. This will form the first layer of the shot. The schnapps serves as a sweet, caramel-like base that sets the tone for the drink.

Layer the Irish Cream:

  • Next, carefully layer 1/2 oz of Irish Cream on top of the butterscotch schnapps. To do this effectively, hold a spoon upside down over the shot glass and slowly pour the Irish Cream over the back of the spoon. This method helps the Irish Cream to gently sit on top of the schnapps without mixing, creating a beautiful two-layer effect.

Serve Immediately:

  • Once you have successfully layered the shot, serve it immediately. The visual appeal of the layers is best enjoyed right away, and the combination of flavors is particularly enjoyable when fresh.



  • Chill the ingredients beforehand to enhance the smoothness and richness of the shot.
  • You can garnish the shot with a small sprinkle of edible gold dust or a tiny drizzle of caramel sauce for an extra touch of decadence.
The Buttery Nipple shot is a perfect choice for ending a meal on a sweet note or starting a festive night out. Its rich flavor and creamy texture make it a favorite among those who enjoy dessert-like cocktails. Enjoy this delightful shot responsibly and savor the combination of butterscotch and cream in every sip!
