It contains Butterscotch Schnapps and Irish Cream, and can be topped with whipped cream and raspberries to make it a genuine alcoholic dessert drink. Although you may only know this bad boy as The Buttery Nipple, it also goes by several other names, including Cowboy, Butterball, and C*!ksucking Cowboy — and yes, that last name is most definitely real. Bailey’s is usually the type of cream liqueur used to make The Buttery Nipple, but any brand of cream liqueur will do just fine. You should also expect this Bailey’s cocktail to be 32 proof, which means it’ll have an ABV of around 16%. That’s not as strong as a lot of mixed drinks out there, but definitely still strong enough to get most people tipsy. You’ll also usually see this shot layered, although that isn’t always the case.
