The Orgasm is a cocktail that can be served either on the rocks or layered and drunk as a shooter.

There are many versions of this popular mixed drink. Bartending 101 gives one version as equal parts Amaretto, Kahlúa and Baileys Irish Cream.[1] One version is "made on your B.A.C.K.", meaning it is made with Baileys, Amaretto, half and half (cream) and Kahlúa, with each ingredient having one part. Another variation contains 1/3 oz. each of Vodka, Amaretto, Triple Sec and White Creme de Cacao, and 1 oz. of light cream. This variation of the recipe is sometimes known as a "Screaming Orgasm".

Since 2011, the cocktail is no longer part of the "official IBA cocktails" of the International Bartenders Association (IBA).
