What you need
Ok, let’s get to the ingredient list and what you’ll need to whip up this breakfast shot.
- Irish Cream Liquer
- Butterscotch Schanpp’s
- Vanilla Vodka
- Vanilla Extract
- Ground Cinnamon
- Caramel Syrup
For bar tools you will need a cocktail shaker and shot glasses.
Not too bad, right?
Whipping up these shots is so easy! You may have noticed in cocktail and shot recipes the portions are referred to as “parts”. A part isn’t an exact form a measurement and more loosely is referring to the amounts or ratios of the ingredient in relation to the other ingredients. If something says 1 part vodka and 1 part orange juice, you’ll know this means use equal amounts of vodka and orange juice. Now, 1 part could be the size of a shot, or it could be something larger depending on the size of the drink you’re making.
For the sake of this recipe, I thought it would be helpful to show you what I used to measure my ingredients so you know my reference point of a “part”. I also included exact measurement of each ingredient. If you’re like me, I really appreciate exactness in recipes and I think it’s important so you can replicate this shot exactly as I made it!
So this little guy here is called a jigger. You’ve got the large size with is 2oz, and the smaller size is 1oz. I used the small 1oz size for this shot.
- 1oz Irish Cream Liquor
- 1oz Butterscotch Schnapp’s
- 1/2oz Vanilla Vodka
- 1/4 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
- Several dashes of ground cinnamon
Shake all over ice then pour into a caramel drizzled shot glass. If I were using the “part” method of writing this I would write it as 1 part Irish Cream Liquor, 1 part Butterscotch Schnapp’s, 1/2 part Vanilla Vodka, 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract and several dashes of ground cinnamon.
So, let me know….are you going to be making this French Toast shot at your next brunch? Turn up your brunch or breakfast gathering and don’t eat the French toast, drink it!Print

Irish Cream Liquor
1. Prepare your shot glasses by drizzling each with caramel sauce all around the inside of each glass.
2. Take your cocktail shaker and fill it with ice, about 5 cubes. Next, pour in the ingredients 1oz Irish Cream Liquor, 1oz Butterscotch Schnapp’s, 1/2oz Vanilla Vodka, 1/4 teaspoon Vanilla Extract, and several dashes of ground cinnamon.

This will equal 1 shot.
3. Shake everything vigorously, then pour into the prepared shot glasses. Enjoy responsibly!
