The taste profile of Baby Guinness


25 Reviews

This shot recipe tastes pleasantly mild and sweet. The coffee liqueur and the Irish cream harmonise very well with each other and make for a very special taste. The taste is most comparable to that of the B52. However, the overproof rum makes this shot much stronger and more alcoholic. Prepare the Baby Guinness at home and discover the special taste experience. Discover and enjoy now!
