Coffee and Irish cream liqueurs are a delicious combination and the addition of an orange liqueur gives this popular shot a slight fruity taste. The B-52 is also a great shot to practice your layering skills with.

This also makes a great, thick sipping cocktail when the ingredients are increased (keeping the same ratio), shaken, and served in a chilled cocktail glass.
