Mini Beer Shot

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. To make this enchanting drink, fill a shot glass about two-thirds full with Licor 43, a Spanish liqueur known for its notes of vanilla and citrus. Then, carefully pour a layer of velvety heavy cream on top to mimic the frothy head of a beer.

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. It’s a whimsical shot that adds a touch of merriment to any occasion. Raise a Baby Beer Shot to celebrate, and let its dreamy flavors transport you to a world of miniature delights.

What are Mini Beers made of?

There are just two ingredients for this Mini Beer Shot. Be sure to chill the Licor 43 (we prefer to place the liqueur in the freezer) before making this shot! The complete ingredient list is listed below:


  • Licor 43
  • Heavy Cream

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.


To make these great-tasting Mini Beer Shots, you’ll need a couple of 2oz shot glasses (these mini beer shot glasses found on Amazon would be fun) and a bar spoon.

Recipe Steps

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.
