Buttery Nipple Shot Recipe
I wish there was a better name for this cocktail shot but I am pretty sure it is one of the 1980s classic shot recipes that have names that just make you shake your head.
For some reason cocktails in the 80s all seemed to have names with plenty of sexual innuendos.
Other fun cocktails include Blowjob Shot, Sex on the Beach cocktail, red-headed slut shot, drunk gummy bears, Between the Sheets, Screaming Orgasm, Slow Comfortable Screw Against the Wall, Harvey Wallbanger, and the Woo Woo.
I remember going to bartending school right when I turned 21 and not even knowing what to say when we learned how to make these 80's cocktails.
I am pretty sure I blushed a few times talking about the cocktails while in class.
There is also a slippery nipple shot that is made with grenadine, sambuca, and Irish Cream.
The Buttery Nipple Drink is a dessert drink that is sweet and delicious. If you like creamy butterscotch candy you will enjoy this cocktail shot.

This Buttery Nipple Shot can be made as a layered shot or as a mixed cocktail shot. To make it a layered shot slowly pour the Butterscotch Schnapps over the back of a bar spoon so it will float on the top of the Irish cream layer.
We tend to mix it so it gets nice and cold after being shaken with ice in a cocktail shaker.
You can make this in a chilled shot glass to keep the alcohol cold.
To make a buttery nipple cocktail you can double the recipe and pour it into a rocks glass.
