Delight in the whimsical charm of Mini Beer Shots, a playful libation that mimics the appearance of a tiny beer while surprising your taste buds with a sweet and creamy twist.
This delightful shot combines the flavors of Licor 43 and heavy cream to create a miniature glass of creamy goodness.

The result is a visually stunning shot that captures the essence of a refreshing pint. The rich and smooth Licor 43 blends harmoniously with the creamy texture of the heavy cream, creating a luscious and indulgent flavor profile.
Each sip of the Mini Beer Shot is a delightful surprise – the first hint of vanilla and citrus followed by the luxurious creaminess.

What type of alcohol is Licor 43?
Licor 43 is a sweet, vanilla-flavored Spanish vanilla liqueur produced in Cartagena, Spain. It comprises 43 different ingredients/herbs and spices, which is how its name came to be.
The steps for this drink are straightforward. Just fill 2/3 of a shot glass about with chilled Licor 43. Using the back of a spoon (a bar spoon is preferred, but any will do), float a layer of heavy cream almost to the top of the shot glass. This will look like a mini beer head on top.
