Drinks Beginning With B

B-50 Series
The B-50 series of shots are variations on the B-52 shot that have warranted their own name. They are typically composed of Kahlúa, Baileys Irish Cream, and a third liqueur.

Kahlua, Baileys, Grand Marnier. The B-52 is a layered shot served in a pousse-cafe glass. Variations include using half measures in a shot glass, using teaspoons of grand marnier to fill a double shot glass.

B and B
1 measure (30 mL) brandy, 1 measure (30 mL) Benedictine.
Float the Brandy on top of the Benedictine.
Baby Guinness
Tia Maria, topped up with Baileys.
The Baileys should be poured into the Tia Maria using the back of a spoon, this slows down the pouring of the Baileys and should allow the Baileys to sit on top of the Tia Maria to look like a baby pint of Guinness. The glass used to drink this should be a small whiskey glass or a shot/shooter glass. It is very sweet to taste which is why it is very popular among young adults.
Bailey’s Comet
½ shot (15 mL) of Baileys Irish Cream, ½ shot (15 mL) of Goldschlager (although any thin flammable cinnamon except Hot Damn will do), splash of flammable alcohol (Bacardi 151 works well), pinch of cinnamon.
Fill shot glass half way with Baileys Irish Cream. Layer on top half shot of Goldschlager. Add splash of flammable alcohol. Sprinkling cinnamon into the flame will cause sparks to appear in an otherwise dim blue flame.
Banana Banshee
2 oz (60 mL) cream, 1 oz (30 mL) banana liqueur and 1 oz (30 mL) cacao liqueur (white).
Pour into an ice filled shaker. Shake and pour into a cocktail glass. Add a garnish of nutmeg powder. 
Banana Daiquiri
2 measures (60 mL) light rum, 1 measure banana liqueur (Pisang Ambon), 1 measure (30 mL) lime juice, half a banana, crushed ice.
Mix the rum, banana liqueur, lime juice, the banana and the ice in a blender. Strain into a cocktail glass.
1 shot (30 mL) of silver tequila, 1 shot (30 mL) of sangrita, 1 shot (30 mL) of lemon juice, salt on a small dish.
There is no method to mix this drink. You should drink, one at a time, the shot of tequila, sangrita and lemon juice. Salt is used for lowering the ‘boom’ of the tequila. Named after the Mexican flag.
1 part Kahlúa, 3 parts ginger ale, ice.
Pour Kahlúa into glass with ice. Top off with ginger ale. Tastes sweet.
Bastille Bomb
1 part blue curaçao, 1 part Cointreau, 1 part grenadine.
The Bastille Bomb is a layered shot. First add the grenadine (the most dense of the liquids), then the curaçao, then the Cointreau (the least dense).
1 oz Hennessy® cognac, 1 oz Grand Marnier® orange liqueur.
Pour each ingredient into a brandy snifter and serve.[1]
Bee’s Kiss

Build over ice drink with a straw
1 oz (30 mL) light rum, 1 oz (30 mL) gold rum, ½ oz (15 mL) Razzmatazz (crème de cassis and chambord are acceptable substitutions), ¾ fill with cranberry juice, ¼ fill with pineapple juice.
Build drink in an iced hurricane glass, roll into shaker for a few shakes, pour back into glass, garnish with a squeeze of lime and serve.
2 oz (60 mL) white peach purée, 5 oz (150 mL) prosecco sparkling wine. Pour peach purée then prosecco into a mixing glass filled with ice.
Gently roll the shaker end over end to mix the ingredients. Do not shake as shaking will make the prosecco flat and could cause the mixing glass to explode. Strain into a champagne glass and serve. 
Between The Sheets
½ oz (15 mL) brandy, ½ oz (15 mL) rum, ½ oz (15 mL) triple sec, 1 oz (30 mL) lemon juice.

Build over ice in a glass.
Black Dick
1 oz (30 mL) creme de banane, 1 oz (30 mL) Kahlúa. Also known as Black Banana.
Black Forest
1 oz (30 mL) creme de cacao, 1 oz (30 mL) cherry liqueur, 1 oz (30 mL) Kirschwasser, 1 oz (30 mL) cream.

Black Russian
2 parts vodka, 1 part kahlua, 1 part Coke (optional).
Mix ingredients, stir and add ice.
Black and Tan
Stout beer (such as Guinness) and another, lighter beer (such as an ale or lager).
A common technique is to fill the glass half full of the light beer, and then carefully pour the dark beer in, over an upside-down spoon, so that the two don’t mix.
Black Velvet
6 oz (180 mL) cold Guinness, 6 oz (180 mL) cold dry champagne or other dry sparkling wine.
A black velvet is made by filling a tall flute glass halfway full of chilled stout and floating the sparkling wine on top of the stout, with the differing densities of the liquids allowing them to remain largely in separate layers (as in a pousse-café). The effect is best achieved if it is poured over a spoon turned upside down over the top of the glass so that the liquid runs gently down the sides rather than splashing into the lower layer and mixing with it.
A common variation is the poor man’s black velvet, prepared with a cider or perry bottom layer.
