This layered shot will, quite frankly, get you bombed.

  • ½ fluid ounce triple sec

  1. Without the triple sec this drink is called a Buttery Nipple. I prefer the latter than to this the B52 as it is sickenly sweet.
  2. I didn't make them as a shot, but made a bunch in a pitcher as a Thanksgiving "dessert" even though I think we finished them off before dinner...very smooth. No matter how hard I tried I couldn't layer them so I gave up and just mixed it.
