The slippery nipple is a layered cocktail shooter most commonly composed of Baileys Irish Cream and sambuca. When prepared properly, the ingredients remain in two distinct visible layers due to the relative densities of the ingredients.

History[edit]

The creator concocted the slippery nipple and named it in the 1980s during a period of renewed popularity of cocktails and mixed drinks. criticized by New York Times writer William Grimes as "the leader of a kind of cult, rallying points for young drinkers in search of fun and not too picky about taste".[citation needed] The drink's name is similar to trend of other drinks invented in twentieth century, such as "Sex on the Beach", which were intentionally shocking or humorous.[citation needed]

Preparation[edit]

The drink is made from 1/2 oz. sambuca, 1/2 oz. Irish cream liqueur, and optionally, a drop of grenadine or a cherry. Some versions of the drink replace the sambuca with equal parts of anisette and peppermint schnapps.[1]
