Baileys Irish Cream liqueur is a popular ingredient in cocktails and holiday drinks, but there are plenty of ways to use it to make tasty shots too! These 12 Baileys shots look as good as they taste.
With a shot for every occasion, you’ll be running out to stock up on your favorite flavors of Baileys Irish Cream.
Kahlua and Baileys Shots
The B-52 shot
The B-52 is a layered shot with an eye-catching appearance and distinct taste. To create this shot, fill a shot glass ⅓ of the way with Kahlua. Next, slowly pour another ⅓ with Baileys. Finally, fill the last ⅓ of the glass with Grand Marnier orange liqueur.
You can use a bar spoon to help gently pour the top two layers until you’ve mastered your layering skills to prevent the layers from mixing with the coffee liqueur.
Baby Irish Coffee Shots
The Irish coffee shot is made with Baileys, Kahlua original rum, and Kahlua coffee liqueur. The shot looks like an inviting iced coffee in a shot glass. Top with a fresh whipped cream mixture to tame the flavor a bit.
Duck Fart Shot
by Mom Foodie
The duck fart shot is another interestingly named yet memorable shot with Baileys and Kahlua. This shot originated in Alaska but is now enjoyed nationwide. To make this shot, Kahlua is added to a shot glass first. Baileys is gently layered on top, followed by whiskey.
The original recipe calls for Crown Royal, but whatever you have on hand will get the job done.
Jello Shots with Baileys
Baileys Irish cream Jello Shots
This Baileys jello shot recipe is unique because the jello shots can be turned into whatever shape you want at the end. The jello shots are set in a 9×9 baking dish. Then you can cut them into squares or whatever shape you desire! Hot coffee, Baileys Irish cream, and unflavored gelatin make the jello shots.
Top with whipped cream once they’ve been cut out, and enjoy these bite-sized jello shots at your next party!
Baby Guinness Jello Shot
These jello shots look like a mini glass of Guinness. To make them, you’ll create the bottom and top layers separately. Once the bottom layer has been set, the top layer can be added. The bottom layer is made using Guinness, Patron Cafe, unflavored gelatin, and creme de cacao.
The second layer is made with Baileys, hot water, and unflavored gelatin. When the shot is made correctly, the top layer with Baileys looks just like the foam at the top of a freshly poured Guinness.
Christmas Sugar Cookie Jello Shot
Who doesn’t love a soft, sweet Christmas sugar cookie? Get the fun flavors of Christmas cookies in a drink with this shot. Unflavored gelatin, Baileys, Kahlua, and butterscotch schnapps make creamy jello shot perfect for your Christmas party.
Sweet Baileys Shots
Salted Caramel Shot
by Love to Know
This salted caramel shot uses delicious salted caramel Baileys Irish cream to create a shot with just two ingredients. Mix salted caramel Baileys with vanilla vodka in a cocktail shaker with ice.
Top the shot with caramel syrup and flakey sea salt. Add a drizzle of chocolate syrup for added sweetness.
Oatmeal Cookie Shooter
Some cocktail recipes seem too good to be true, but this shot really does taste like a boozy oatmeal cookie. Butterscotch schnapps, Baileys, and cinnamon schnapps capture the flavors of an oatmeal cookie.
Add a splash of Jagermeister if you enjoy the taste, but it’s not for everyone.
Buttery Nipple Shot
The buttery nipple shot, not to be confused with the slippery nipple shot, is a two-ingredient layered shot. Butterscotch schnapps is added first. Then Baileys Irish cream is layered on top by pouring it over a bar spoon.
Christmas Shots with Baileys
Christmas Kahlua and Baileys Pudding Shot
Pudding shots are a dessert and a shot in one tasty serving. You can make the recipe using vanilla or chocolate pudding mix or do some of both so your guests can choose their preferences.
Don’t forget to stock up on Christmas-themed sprinkles to top it off!
Christmas Tree Shot
All the ingredients in this drink may not seem Christmassy on their own, but when combined, it turns into holiday magic. Creme de menthe, grenadine, and Baileys are layered to make a stunning Christmas tree shot.
Top with whipped cream and your favorite holiday sprinkles.
Mint Chocolate Chip Shot
Before you start preparing this shot, drizzle the chocolate sauce on the inside of the shot glass. Creme de menthe, Baileys, and Frangelico, are combined in a cocktail shaker with ice, then strained into the prepared shot glass.
