Used to drink these with an added ingredient.
Grand Marnier
Top layer of 151

Hey Dave, if you use Crown Royal it is called a Duck Fart...

The best way (and the coolest way, if you're a bartender) is to pour each liquor down a cherry stem so that you get three distinct layers in the glass. Then when you drink it, you also get to taste each flavor! Fantastic.

Always loved White Russians. Tried a B-52--will never go back!! It's like a White Russian on steroids!.

lighting it burns off the alcohol, looks great but defeats the purpose -- CHEERS!

kahlua, bailey's, amaretto. legit.

its kinda soft. but great. i tried with vodka with higher alco % instead of grand marnier. ( to light up)

By Dave on March 2nd, 2010 at 09:15:20

I have substituted Crown Royal for the Grand Marnier. It gives the drink an added kick.

I think Gran gala makes a better middle layer.
It is thicker than gran marnier and half the price.

By sasha on November 19th, 2009 at 19:52:12

the best way is to actually light it up!!!!

By Fred on October 31st, 2009 at 08:33:48

Try Absinth instead of Grand Marnier ;-)

By Xander on October 30th, 2009 at 18:46:48

Tastes like a lighter version of a Concorde.

By Lisa on October 28th, 2009 at 13:39:46

Hate to break the news to you, but B52s have been around since the dawn of time!

By Johann on October 17th, 2009 at 21:35:28

Bailey's, Kahlua, Disaronno.... THE best, hands down. I was pissed when I found out somebody already named my drink. I thought I had something unique and then someone slanders the good taste of this drink with a pop-culture music group - that or airforce bomber reference - either way, there's only one way to do it right.

Used to drink them at a bar here in town years ago, so I made one last night and...yummm! Just like I remembered. At another bar I remember having a B-54 instead...gotta look it up...

By Val on August 12th, 2009 at 10:37:30

I don't know about America...but in Europe- we light it before drinking it!

By SGT Bob on July 22nd, 2009 at 15:36:04

drank a squadron of these on Norfolk Va. Just missed getting arrested that night. Ooorah!

By justin on July 3rd, 2009 at 20:48:25

this is a bad ass drink, my bartender makes an actual drink for me with a shot of each, its expensive but it only takes 2 and im hammered :D

By Daniel on June 30th, 2009 at 17:49:20

with Absolut instead of the Grand Marnier, that's a Mudslide

By ALGard on March 29th, 2009 at 15:22:18

Absolutely amazing! But I had it with Kahlua, Bailey's, and Absolut instead of the Grand Marnier. Wonder which tastes better?

By lumberjack on March 22nd, 2009 at 09:43:57

Blacked out lol

By Skumdog on March 20th, 2009 at 06:47:47

Very creamy and delicious!

By mmm mmm on February 20th, 2009 at 21:04:26

3 jiggers of each over lots of ice...heaven on earth!!!

By K.S. on December 9th, 2008 at 08:56:55

Made this for a bunch of exchange students at a party. It was awesome! (They had also never heard of a blowjob shot apparently...)

By c on November 3rd, 2008 at 21:04:49

Puked my guts out after drinking two of these (after 6 funny tasting tequila sunrises) But it does taste sooooo good!

By rdpc on October 13th, 2008 at 11:52:35

yummy!! one of the best shots ever--tastes like a milk shake!! =]

By TS on October 4th, 2008 at 23:57:03

This also works good with Triple Sec - takes some of the price off tool
