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

There are a few variations of this shooter and it 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, with the banana liqueur in between. If you decide to layer the ingredients rather than blend them together, make sure to refrigerate the ingredients and chill the glass first, before attempting to make the layers. 

Go boldly forth and give the Beam Me Up Scotty shooter a try. While these shooters should be made up one at a time, it is a great conversation piece to serve at parties and get-togethers.


Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. In a cocktail shaker, pour the liqueurs—coffee, banana, and Irish creme, and then fill it with ice.

  3. Shake well.

  4. Strain it into a shot glass.

  5. Serve and enjoy.


  • It is fairly easy to make homemade Irish Creme. All that's required are a few ingredients and a blender.
  • Homemade Coffee Liqueur can also be made at home but requires a bit more time to prepare, as it needs an infusion time of 10 days along with straining through cheesecloth before it's ready to drink.

How to Make Better Drinks

Making the perfect drink at home has become easier with these useful tips. Learn what glasses to use, when to shake and how to strain a cocktail and more hints toward getting the ideal drink.

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 percent ABV (44 proof) 
  • Shaken Beam Me Up Scotty: 16 percent ABV (32 proof)
