We’re kicking off the Christmas season and the countdown to the end of 2016 (finally) with a retro coffee cocktail – the B-52!
A favourite on the ’70s club scene, the B-52 was invented by Peter Fich, a head bartender at the Banff Springs Hotel in Alberta. He named all his new drinks after his favourite bands, albums and songs. This drink was, of course, named after the band, the B-52s!
There are plenty of different versions. We’re using coffee liquor, Irish creme whisky and Grand Marnier. As for the perfect layers. The trick is to pour your liquors over the back of a dessert spoon and into your shot glass.
Three different liquors, no ice – what could possibly go wrong?
