Blow Job

The Blow Job shot belongs to an era of provocatively named cocktails dating back to the 1980s and ’90s. By the time this layered shot appeared on the scene, bartenders had been making fun cocktails and shooters for several years, perhaps none more popular than the Sex on the Beach. Most of these drinks were characterized more by their lascivious names than their quality, but their appeal was widespread.

The Blow Job shot is relatively low-alcohol and easy to make, combining just three ingredients: amaretto, Irish cream and whipped cream. The Irish cream is layered onto the amaretto, and the whipped cream is applied as a topper.

The drink is meant to be tipped back in one go. You can pick it up with your hand, of course. That is the easiest, least messy way to go. But traditionally, the shot is consumed hands-free. In this case, the drinker puts their hands at their sides or behind their back and picks up the entire shot glass with their mouth, downing it all by tilting their head back.

Whichever route you choose for imbibing the cocktail, the shot is sweet and creamy. So, pour a round the next time you’re entertaining a crowd—it’s difficult to have a bad time when Blow Job shots are on the menu.
