Glass Guide- Shot Glass

Celebrate St. Patrick's Day with this layered shot. Each liqueur is poured on top of the previous and represent the colors of the Irish flag. The three flavors of the liqueurs are not the most complimentary but neither are they the worst and some people do like this one for its flavor. It is important for effect to float the liqueurs on top of one another in the order given over the back of a barspoon.

Use brandy instead, Member Mcinnes101

This shot is sooooooo much better if you use creme de menthe, bailys and BRANDY. It still gives the desired affect of the green, white and orange but with a much more complimentary taste. I mean why orange, just picture brushing your teeth and then drinking orange juice (shutter).
