Irish Breakfast Shot Recipe
If you’re looking for a fun and festive drink to enjoy with brunch, look no further than the Irish breakfast shot. Also known as the pancake shot, this pairing of Irish whiskey and butterscotch liqueur with a side of orange juice and bacon leaves you with a taste of maple syrup-covered pancakes. Though the flavor profile is more reminiscent of a traditional American breakfast than a full Irish breakfast, the Irish breakfast shot is significantly less hearty than both and packs sweet, savory, and salty flavors into a tiny glass.
