B-52 Cocktail

The B-52 Cocktail, served in a shot glass, makes me a little crazy.  There I said it.

While I don’t promote drinking with reckless abandon, I must admit that in my younger days (and at last year’s Christmas Party)….I enjoyed partaking in shots.  Yep, I was that girl.

My first introduction to the B-52 was about 20 years ago.  I was bellied up to the bar at our local watering hole, Third Coast Grill (which sadly no longer remains).  It was a good Friday night, great atmosphere, awesome crowd and I was feeling a little adventurous.  I asked my favorite bar tender to make me something fun and different.  He delivered a B-52. Oh boy.

I liked it very much.  I remember this night even 20 years later.  It was the night I bought everyone at the bar B-52 Cocktails.  Needless to say that bar tab was forever etched in our memories.  Right along side the B-52.

Course Cocktail


  • 1/2 – 1 ounce Kahlua
  • 1/2 – 1 ounce Irish Cream Liquor such as St. Brendan’s or Baileys
  • 1/2 – 1 ounce Grand Marnier


  • Add Kahlua to shot glass.
  • Then with glass tipped at a 45 degree angle, slowly pour in the Irish Cream, allowing it to run down the inside of the shot glass.
  • To keep the Grand Marnier afloat, it’s best to use a pouring spout. Again, slightly tip the glass then very, very slowly pour in the Grand Marnier allowing it to run down the inside of the glass.
  • Enjoy!
