Irish Cream

The Fallen Froggie

About The Fallen Froggie

Meet the far eastern cousin of the Brain Hemorrhage shot, the Fallen Froggie. Also known as the Squished Frog, this visually……interesting shot is packed with flavor and isn’t too strong since the alcoholic ingredients are low proof. Arguably sweeter than the original recipe, and typically always more sweet than its other cousin the Alien Brain Hemorrhage, the Fallen Froggie is a an interesting way to start off a night or keep the party going. The flavor is a meld of sweet melon, pomegranate, peach, and Irish cream. Note the consistency is NOT smooth and the grenadine and cream combine to make the shot thick.

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.

The Irish Car Bomb

About The Irish Car Bomb

The Irish Car Bomb is a controversial American cocktail recipe featuring many ingredients of Irish origin. The “explosion” effect of the Baileys into the beer drew the idea for the name of this cocktail. Be warned, ordering this drink in Ireland can be seen as offensive as it refers to a difficult time in Irish history. Overall, the drink is fairly heavy in taste and remains a popular barplace staple in the States.

The Buttery Nipple

About The Buttery Nipple

This shot is a relative of the 80’s famous Slippery Nipple shot made similarly with Sambuca. The Buttery Nipple is a sweet shot that goes down smooth. This is always a popular choice to start the night as it lacks a serious punch and can ease you into a strong night.
