This one is all over the internet but I knew nothing about it till my "Cool Cousin" started milling around at the reunion with a plate full of these Little Beers. Thank you Jenny! If you like buttery nipples this is right up your ally. They may look like little beers but taste like slightly melted vanilla ice cream and a hint of liquor to me. Keep the Licor 43 in the fridge until well chilled, the cold really brightens the flavor and keeps the cream from curdling.
Discover the Mini Beer Shot: A Sweet Treat with Licor 43 and Heavy Cream
If you're looking for a unique and fun beverage to serve at your next gathering, look no further than the Mini Beer Shot. The name might be confusing, since this little concoction doesn't contain any beer at all! Instead, it's a delicious blend of Licor 43 liqueur and heavy cream served in miniature beer glasses. In this blog post, you'll learn how to make this popular little shot and discover its delightful secret.
What Makes the Mini Beer Shot Special?
The Mini Beer Shot surprises many people when they learn that it doesn't contain beer. This sweet treat is made from Licor 43, a Spanish vanilla liqueur with notes of orange and cinnamon. When combined with heavy cream, the result is a rich and aromatic flavor that's perfect as an after-dinner dessert drink.
At first glance, the Mini Beer Shot looks just like a tiny glass of beer, thanks to the bright yellow hue of Licor 43 and the frothy appearance created by the cream on top. This visual deception adds to the charm of serving this delightful shot.
How to Create Your Own Mini Beer Shot
Making your own Mini Beer Shot is simple when you follow these easy steps:
1. If your Licor 43 isn't already chilled, pour it into a mixing glass filled with ice to bring its temperature down.
2. Fill small beer shot glasses about two-thirds full with chilled Licor 43.
3. Gently pour the heavy cream over the back of a spoon to create a slow stream, allowing it to settle on top of the Licor 43 and form a creamy layer that mimics foamy beer head.
To make this drink even more enjoyable and authentic, be sure to use mini beer shot glasses that resemble tiny beer mugs. These can be easily found online or at specialty stores. Here is a link to them on Amazon.
The Liqueur Behind the Mini Beer Shot: Licor 43
For those who might be curious about the star ingredient in this dessert shot, Licor 43 is a vanilla-flavored Spanish liqueur made with 43 different herbs and botanicals. This mid-priced liqueur costs around $15 for a 375 ml bottle and $25 for a 750 ml bottle.
Originally created in 1946 by the Zamora family, Licor 43 boasts an alluring combination of vanilla, orange peel, spices, and cocoa flavors. It's versatile enough to be used in various cocktails or served straight up as a shot.
The Mini Beer Shot is a great addition to your dessert drink repertoire. Its sweet, creamy, and aromatic flavors make it perfect for entertaining guests or simply enjoying a cozy night in. With its eye-catching appearance and delicious taste, this delightful shot will surely surprise and impress your friends with its beer-like presentation and sweet secret twist.
