This appears to be a riff on the Monkeys Lunch cocktail, which is served on the rocks and uses milk instead of Irish cream. I have no idea when these were created or by whom. Maybe it is better that way! This is very sweet and easy to drink!

Monkey's Lunch Shooter

  • 1/2 oz. Mr. Black Coffee liqueur

  • 1/2 oz. Banana liqueur

  • 1/2 oz. Baileys Irish Cream

Monkey's Lunch Shooter



First pour the coffee liqueur into a chilled shot glass. Next pour the banana liqueur over the back of a spoon. Then pour the Irish cream over the back of a spoon. Serve the shooter immediately.

Serve as cold as possible, I put the shot glasses in the freezer before making.

Remember, there is no single right way to make a cocktail. Feel free to experiment and adjust my recipes to your own taste and liking. The key is to have fun while doing it. Cheers!

Hi, I'm Scott Gardner, your mindful mixologist. While I am not a professional bartender, I have made well over two hundred different and unique cocktails, and invented over fifteen original drinks, including my famous European Vacation, Muzetta's Waltz, and The Cherry Bella, all of which can be found in my book, Lock it, Flip it, Kick it & Shake!

Besides shaking, stirring, and sipping, I also enjoy golfing, reading, and writing. My wife and I both love animals and we have recently gotten into birding, which is a fun and rewarding hobby. And our favorite birds... The Philadelphia Eagles, of course! Go Birds!
