This Simple Butterball Cocktail is the perfect blend of Bailey’s Irish Cream and Butterscotch Schnapps. It’s sweet and creamy and tastes like a butterscotch candy.
The butterball cocktail is really just a twist on the popular shot, the buttery nipple, which you may have heard of. It is sure to warm you up on a cold evening or as a night cap.
There are many variations of this drink, some include vodka, cream or milk. But why make it complicated? I went for simplicity, just sticking with the Bailey’s and butternut schnapps. Sometimes the simpler the better and I must say this is one of those times!
If you have never had Bailey’s Irish Cream you are missing out. The makers wanted to make something blending two things Ireland is famous for, dairy cream and Irish Whiskey. In their own words “It took two years of trial and error but by 1974 we had added the finest spirits, rich chocolate and vanilla flavors (with some other flavors and ingredients) along with a little magic, to create the Baileys recipe we now know and love.”
We enjoy Bailey’s as an after dinner drink, in coffee or on the rocks. It is a nice way to cap off a holiday or family gathering.

We like to use a highball glass for this drink. Fill it with ice. Add 4 oz. of Bailey’s Irish Cream and 3 oz. of butterscotch schnapps. Stir and let sit for a minute to chill. Enjoy!
