The Slippery Nipple was likely invented during the 1980s when interest peaked in suggestive drinks, including the most famous—the vodka-spiked Sex on the Beach. While there are a few different variations on the layered shot—some of which have liqueur-appropriate names like the Buttery Nipple (with butterscotch schnapps) and the Fuzzy Nipple (with peach schnapps)—the original recipe uses only two ingredients: Italian sambuca and Irish cream. Make this sweet and creamy shot at home so you don’t have to go through the embarrassing ordeal of ordering one from a bartender.
- .5 oz Sambuca
- .5 oz Irish cream
Pour Sambuca into a shot glass.
Layer Irish cream on top.
