Layered shot of combining creme de menthe, Irish cream, and orange liqueur.


  • 1/3 oz green crème de menthe
  • 1/3 oz Irish cream liqueur
  • 1/3 oz orange liqueur Grand Marnier


  • Pour the green crème de menthe into the shot glass. This is your first layer.
  • Carefully layer the Irish cream liqueur on top. To do this, pour it slowly over the back of a spoon so it doesn't mix with the green layer.
  • Finally, add the orange liqueur using the same spoon method. This creates the top orange layer.
  • Admire your work before drinking.
