Here’s how to make the B 52 cocktail, aka B52 shot! Layered Kahlua, Irish cream, and Grand Marnier make the perfect sip.


  • 1 ounce* Kahlua (1/2 ounce for the shot)
  • 1 ounce Irish cream (1/2 ounce for the shot)
  • 1 ounce Grand Marnier (1/2 ounce for the shot)


  1. Add the Kahlua to a glass or shot glass. Slowly add Irish cream by pouring it over the back of a spoon.
  2. Slowly add the Grand Marnier over the back of spoon, allowing it to layer on top. The smaller size of the shot glass makes a more visible Grand Marnier layer. If drinking as a cocktail, you’ll want to stir before sipping. Enjoy! 


*1 ounce = 2 tablespoons
