Red Velvet Shot Ingredients
It’s all about the layering. A layered shot is a drink that has two or more layers of liquor. This Red Velvet shot has 3 layers in order to mimic the candy corn layers (pink, red and white).
The key to the perfect layered shot is to pour s l o w l y, very slowly. Don’t rush each step because otherwise you won’t get clean layers.
I use a bartender spoon to help with this part of the pouring process but you can use a teaspoon and some people even use the side of a butter knife.
Here’s what you need to make the Red and Pink layered shot:
- Bailey’s Red Velvet Irish Creme
- Milk or coconut milk
I used milk in my shots but you can also make them with coconut milk. I tried with cream but it is just too heavy to stay at the top of the shot.
The great thing about this shot is all you need is shot glasses.
How To Make A Red Velvet Shot
Step 1:Pour the Grenadine
The red layer is a simple pour of grenadine.
Step 2: Second layer
Slowly pour the Baileys into the shot glass using a bartender spoon or a teaspoon to guide the liquid.
Step 3: White layer
Slowly pour the milk again using a bartender spoon to assist.

If you love Baileys then you will love this shot that uses Baileys Red Velvet for one of the layers.
- 1/2 oz Grenadine
- 1/2 oz Red Velvet Cupcake Baileys
- 1/2 oz Milk or coconut milk
- Pour the grenadine into your shot glass
- Next, using a bartending spoon or the back of a teaspoon, slowly pour the Red Velvet Cupcake Baileys into the shot glass
- Finally top the shot with the milk
You can use coconut milk instead of regular milk. Cream or half and half may be too heavy to rest at the top of the shot and result in blurred layers.
