Rosy Nipple Alcohol Shot Recipe

Embrace the sweet and creamy allure of the Rosy Nipple Shot, a delightful blend that combines the rich, caramel notes of Butterscotch Schnapps with the smooth, strawberry creaminess of Tequila Rose.

This shot is a playful and delicious choice for any gathering, offering a taste experience that is as enjoyable as its name is intriguing.

Equipment Needed:

  • Shot glass
  • Bar spoon


  • Butterscotch Schnapps
  • Tequila Rose

How to Make the Rosy Nipple Shot:

  1. Begin by filling the shot glass 80% full with Butterscotch Schnapps. The schnapps lays a sweet, buttery foundation that is both rich and inviting.
  2. Carefully layer the final 20% of the glass with Tequila Rose using a bar spoon. To achieve a clear separation between the two layers, gently pour the Tequila Rose over the back of the spoon so it floats atop the Butterscotch Schnapps. This method helps maintain the distinct layers, creating a visually appealing shot.

Serve and Enjoy: The Rosy Nipple Shot is best served immediately, allowing guests to enjoy the visual beauty and layered flavours of the drink. Its combination of flavours makes it a perfect choice for those who appreciate a shot that is both potent and sweet.

Pro Tip: For an added touch, consider chilling the ingredients beforehand. Serving the shot cold enhances the flavours and makes the drinking experience even more refreshing. Additionally, a small strawberry slice on the rim of the glass can add a decorative touch and hint at the strawberry flavour of the Tequila Rose.

FAQ: Rosy Nipple Shot

Q1: Can I substitute another liqueur for Butterscotch Schnapps? A1: Yes, if you don’t have Butterscotch Schnapps or prefer a different flavour, you can substitute it with caramel liqueur or vanilla liqueur. Keep in mind that the flavour profile will change slightly, but it will still be delicious.

Q2: Is there a non-alcoholic version of this shot? A2: To make a non-alcoholic version of the Rosy Nipple Shot, you can use butterscotch syrup in place of Butterscotch Schnapps and strawberry milk or a similar creamy, strawberry-flavoured beverage instead of Tequila Rose. The texture and appearance will be similar, though it will be non-alcoholic.

Q3: How can I achieve a perfect layering effect? A3: The key to perfect layering is to pour the second liqueur very gently over the back of a bar spoon so that it lands softly on the first layer without mixing. This technique helps maintain distinct layers for a visually appealing shot.

Q4: Can I prepare this shot in advance? A4: It’s best to prepare the Rosy Nipple Shot just before serving to ensure the layers remain distinct and the flavours are fresh. However, you can pre-measure the ingredients into separate containers for quick assembly.

Q5: How should I serve the Rosy Nipple Shot? A5: Serve the Rosy Nipple Shot in a clear shot glass to showcase the beautiful layers. For an added touch, you can garnish the rim of the glass with sugar or a small strawberry slice for a decorative and flavourful finish.

Q6: Are there any variations to this shot recipe? A6: For a twist on the classic Rosy Nipple Shot, consider adding a splash of cream or milk to the Tequila Rose layer for a creamier texture, or experiment with adding a drop of chocolate syrup to the bottom of the glass for a chocolatey surprise.
