A Star Trek fan had to have created this shooter. It's an interesting mix of coffee, banana and Irish cream liqueurs that create a smooth, creamy shot.

This shooter is also often layered directly in the shot glass. Coffee liqueur (e.g. Kahlua) on the bottom and Irish cream (e.g. Baileys) on the top.

What You'll Need

How to Make It

  1. Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice.
  2. Shake well.
  3. Strain into a shot glass.

How Strong is the Beam Me Up Scotty Shot?

When you shake this shot up it will be a little weaker than if you choose to layer the ingredients. The dilution from the ice makes a big difference, but both are still relatively mild shooters.

  • Layered Beam Me Up Scotty: 22% ABV (44 proof) 
  • Shaken Beam Me Up Scotty: 16% ABV (32 proof)
