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.
This is the first shot I ever ordered out of a bar. Call me nostalgic but I love it (and the memory). This is may be my favorite shot. Of all time. Just sayin.
It’s simple to make with just two ingredients. Sometimes you will see this shot layered. I make it shaken together. That’s just how I do it.
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 anyway. But they DO use the same ingredients.
The cowboy is double the alcohol. I like the buttery nipple as a mellow sweet shot. Not a bull ride.

At 129 calories per shot The Buttery Nipple is a great choice for a dessert drink. It’s sweet and tasty. And Way less calories than a chocolate martini, espresso martini or baileys mudslide or holy cow the Banana Split dessert Cocktail.
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.
