The B-52 cocktail is a timeless layered masterpiece, captivating both the eye and the palate. While traditionally made with coffee liqueur, Irish cream, and orange liqueur, this recipe offers a delightful twist using Spirit of 1737® Chêne, a cognac coffee liqueur, for an extra sophisticated touch.

B-52 Cocktail Ingredients:

Here’s what you’ll need to create your own B-52 at home:

  • 1 oz Spirit of coffee liqueur
  • 1 oz Heavy Cream (or Irish Cream)
  • 1 oz Grand Marnier (or Triple Sec)

Optional Garnishes:

  • Coffee Beans
  • Whipped Cream

Building Your B-52:

  1. The Coffee Foundation: Begin by pouring 1 oz of your chosen coffee liqueur into a shot glass.
  2. Layering the Cream: For a perfect separation of layers, slowly pour the 1 oz of Irish cream (or heavy cream) over the back of a spoon held just above the coffee liqueur. The cream should gently rest on top of the coffee layer.
  3. The Grand Finale: Following the same technique, carefully pour the 1 oz of Grand Marnier (or Triple Sec) over the back of the spoon, creating the final orange layer.

Pro Tip: Use a bar spoon with a long handle for added control while layering.

  1. Ready to Sip (or Stir!): While some enjoy the B-52 in its layered glory, others prefer to give it a quick stir for a blended experience. The choice is yours!

Bonus: Add a touch of elegance with a garnish of coffee beans or a dollop of whipped cream.
