B 52 Shot

The ingredients in this shot are quite simple. To start, you'll need a coffee-flavored liqueur, like Kahlua or Tia Maria. The coffee liqueur gets layered first, as the sweet and syrupy liquid is the densest of the three. Then, the Irish cream liqueur is gently layered on top. Most choose Bailey's, but Carolan's or any other type of Irish cream liqueur will suffice. Finally, top with Grand Marnier, or another popular variation, Cointreau.
