Easy Baby Guinness Shot Recipe doesn't have any Guinness Stout Beer in it. This layered shot is made with Bailey's Irish Cream and Kahlua Coffee Liqueur layered into a shot glass.
Baby Guinness Shot
Guinness is a traditional Irish Stout enjoyed for St. Patrick's Day and year-round. This layered cocktail shot is a playoff a pint of Guinness in a tiny form.
I am always on the hunt for cocktail shots to use these fun glasses.
This shot reminds me of learning to pull the perfect pint of Guinness while visiting the Dublin Storehouse in Ireland. My husband loved this tour and enjoyed all of the Guinness we learned to pour since I am not a fan of it. LOL!
He keeps telling me we need to go back to Dublin and explore more including a return visit to the Dublin Storehouse. I would like to visit the Jameson Distillery Bow St. to learn more about Irish Whiskey.
Until we get back to Dublin we will keep enjoying this Baby Guinness Shot and reminiscing about our last trip to Ireland.
- Bailey's Irish Cream
- Kahlua Coffee Liqueur
Baileys Original Irish Cream is the combination of fine Irish whiskey and spirits, Irish dairy cream, and rich chocolate and vanilla flavors.
Kahlúa is a rum and coffee liqueur.
If you don't have Bailey's or Kahlua you can use another Irish cream or coffee liqueur to make this cocktail shot. Just make sure the density of the coffee liqueur is heavier than the Irish Cream. Other coffee liqueurs include Tia Maria
2 Oz Shot Glass
How to Make a Baby Guinness Shot
Step 1 - Pour the Kahlua Coffee Liqueur in the bottom of the shot glass. Try to pour directly in the middle of the glass to prevent Kahlua getting onto the side of the shot glass. This will help keep the distinct layers in the drink.
Step 2 - Slowly pour the Irish cream over the back of a bartending spoon so it forms the "foam" at the top of the Guinness. We use a bartending spoon since the spoon portion is small enough to fit inside of the shot glass.
You can use a regular spoon but check before pouring that it fits in the shot glass you are using.
This cocktail can be served at room temperature or you can chill the Bailey's and Kahlua before serving.
I have seen the Kahlua changed out for Patron XO Café
