The Buttery Nipple Shot is a particularly fine dessert shot. So sweet and smooth and creamy you will be completely satisfied. A nice shot of sweet satisfaction.
A buttery nipple shot is a cream based shot that uses Butterscotch Schnapps. The base of this shot is two ingredients Bailey’s Irish Cream and Butterscotch Schnapps. This shot gets its name from the creamy buttery taste of the butterscotch. It’s a delicious and easy shot to take.
This shot is also known in different forms by other names like cowboy…and a few names I’m not saying here. They are not exactly the same recipe. But they DO use the same ingredients.
The cowboy is double the alcohol. I like the buttery nipple as a mellow sweet creamy shot.

Buttery Nipple Ingredients:
This is SO simple to make. Who doesn’t have a bottle Baileys Irish Cream and Butterscotch Schnapps in the ole wet bar? You don’t? Go get them. You will find lots of drink recipes to use them up. Promise.
This shot is 32 proof or about 16% alcohol. Perfect relaxer but not too powerful. Just right. Enjoy!
I make the buttery nipple in a tall 2 oz. shot glass so I have room to add a dollop of whipped cream on top. That just finishes this drink perfectly as a dessert drink.
You can also add a fresh raspberry on top if you like. It’s tasty and adds a certain…ambience. If you take my meaning.
