  • Shot glass
  • Cocktail spoon
  • Jigger
  • Small bowl
  • Small plate


For the shot version:

  • 1/2 oz butterscotch schnapps liqueur
  • 1/2 oz Baileys Irish Cream Liqueur

For the cocktail version:

  • 1 1/2 oz butterscotch schnapps liqueur
  • 1 1/2 oz Baileys Irish Cream Liqueur
  • Ice cubes

For the garnish:

  • 2 tbsp white granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon powder
  • 1 tbsp chocolate sprinkles


  • If you are making a shot, chill the shot glass in the fridge at least 10 minutes in advance. 
  • In a small bowl, combine the white sugar, cinnamon, and chocolate sprinkles and set them aside
  • On a small plate, pour the caramel syrup and dip the shot glass or old fashioned glasses.
    If using an old fashioned glass, you can get creative and just dip only one side for an “angle dip” rim.
  • Dip the glass in the sugar, cinnamon, and chocolate sprinkles mixture. Make sure to completely cover the caramel. 
  • If making a cocktail, add a few ice cubes to your glass. Omit this step if you're making a shot.
  • Slowly pour in the Baileys Irish Cream.
    You'll want a layered effect. To do so, slowly pour along the back of the spoon. And move the spoon up as the shot glass or old fashion glass fills.
