The Brain Hemorrhage

About The Brain Hemorrhage

Say hello to the best conversation starter in the bar, the Brain Hemorrhage. This creepy cocktail is a fan favorite due to its sweet flavor, low proof ingredients, and its visually pleasing or unpleasing form. Thanks to ionization and density (science!) this cocktail is able to form the namesake cloud of Irish Cream. This shot is thicker in consistency due to the high density Grenadine and Irish Cream used, so use caution and be mentally prepared when throwing these back or it might make a comeback. A great way to start a night out and impress your friends, we highly recommend this recipe.

Build shot as listed. First pour Schnapps into shot glass and then float Irish Cream using the back of a bar spoon. Drop a single drop of Grenadine into the shot. This pulls the Irish Cream down, forming the cloud.
