  1. Fill a shot glass almost to the top with coffee liqueur. Top off with Irish cream. It should float perfectly on top making the ''head'' of your shot.

I'm out there in the bartending world and the new "baby guinness" is a shot of Cafe Patron (coffee flavored tequila, delish) and a floater of Bailey's Irish Creme...try it, you'll like it :)

We must have done something wrong because it certainly didn't have a head like in this picture. You could barely see the Bailey's at all. We were disappointed but, of course, we still drank it.

These are great at parties and my husband and I absolutely love these! They do look just like the beer if you pour them correctly but beware because they go down very easy...

YUM! We made them with Cafe Patron XO (coffee flavored tequila) and Bailey's.

This really does work! Make sure your alcohol is cold before you do this. I shake up the alcohol seperately with ice in my cocktail shaker before pouring.

This was a fun treat on St. Paddy's day. We poured the cream on the top over the back of a spoon so it rests nicely on top and it looked great. This is very sweet, perfect for the sweet tooth!

This is a really great idea, fantastic presentation (I always need to pour my cream over a spoon for separation). It's a sweeter shot than we usually take but the novelty makes up for it and most everyone can handle them at a party. I agree with the tip about shaking the liqueur separately with ice (at least the coffee), it's better cold and you don't notice the super-sweetness as much. Thanks for sharing.

I used Kahlua and Baileys. Looked just like a Guinness! :)
