Buttery Nipple Drink Recipe

This Buttery Nipple Drink Recipe makes the perfect shot, which is on the sweeter side.  This drink isn’t heavy on the alcohol but does provide a nice, warm undertone due to the butterscotch schnapps.  Enjoy this anytime of the year.

Step 1:

Pour the butterscotch liqueur into a shot glass then pour the Irish cream slowly over the top.  This is a layered drink, so we don’t want to stir or shake the ingredients before pouring into the shot glass.  The Irish cream will float to the top.  The concept is to have twice as much butterscotch liqueur as Irish cream.  Try chilling your shot glass for a nice touch.
