The B 52 shot is a retro cocktail, typically taken as a shooter, that has a sweet, creamy taste. It's said to be named after the popular band from the 1970s. Here, three different liquors poured on top of each other create a distinct, layered look. This is a great cocktail for practicing your layering skills!
