The Baby Guinness Shot is taking a shot of your morning coffee with a little burn. This is a great shot to impress your friends without having a huge amount of alcohol.
What is a Baby Guinness Shot?
A Baby Guinness Shot is a shot meant to look like a pint of Guinness. Essentially you take a dark liquid and top it off with a cream colored liquid. Usually they are made with coffee and cream liqueurs which makes them less alcoholic.
As a big fan of Guinness making a shot that looks like a tiny one is just fun. This goes well along side a Guinness as well since it has that strong coffee flavor with the Bailey’s to smooth it out.
- Coffee Liqueur
- Irish Cream
- Clear Shot Glass
- Bar Spoon
- Grab your shot glass.
- Put coffee liquor in.
- Layer on Irish Cream.
Can I substitute another coffee liqueur?
You can use any coffee liqueur. Kahlúa is just the standard. There are many really good variations out there.
Bailey’s is obviously the standard most people know but any cream liqueur would be perfectly fine.
This just takes practice. Put a spoon up the top of the coffee liqueur and slowly poor the cream over the spoon.
The Olive Twist
The coffee really hits hard in this shot with the Irish cream mellowing out the bitterness. If you’re looking for a little more intense shot you can put a little Jameson (whiskey) in place of some of the coffee liqueur and it will keep most that dark color. You can also choose to use a different dark liquor if coffee isn’t you’re thing.
