Celebrating in the great tradition that is St Patrick’s Day is a great tradition and an excellent excuse to party in the middle of March. Even those without a drop of Irish blood can be Irish for a day! Among the best ways to celebrate is with a great drink.

So here at IrishCentral we suggest you try the Irish Flag Shot recipe and here’s how. This tri-color shooter will have you feeling as Irish as they come.

Irish Flag Shots

1 part crème de menthe
1 part Baileys Irish cream
1 part Grand Marnier
How to make Irish Flag Shots

In a tall shooter glass, pour the crème de menthe in the bottom third. Next, layer the Baileys by pouring it on the back of a bar spoon, to about two-thirds full.

Lastly, layer the Grand Marnier on top.

Don’t be discouraged if this takes a couple of attempts to master. Angling the spoon to touch right above the previous layer seems to help. Also, this won’t work if you reverse the order of the layers.

Take a moment to stand back and marvel at your amazing bartending skills before downing your Irish Flag Shooter.

The Irish Flag Shot can be a little tricky if you’re new to layering. Take your time and don’t rush.

It should take about three minutes, maybe less, to pull off this cool visual trick. The Irish Flag Shooter is a representation of Ireland’s flag.

The layers of green, white, and orange actually have a deeper symbolism than just three colors picked at random, as we shall soon find out.

Watch this simple video to perfect the craft.
