Brain Hemorrhage Anyone?

This is the shot that we'll be serving at the Halloween Party on Saturday.

It's called a Brain Hemorrhage - bet you can guess why.

Honestly, it looks ghastly, but tastes wonderful.

Shall I pour one for you?


The drink goes like this.


1/2 - 3/4 oz. Peach Schnapps

Float 1-2 Tbl. of Baileys on top

Drop 1 tsp of grenadine through the Baileys.


Theatrical magic . . . and it tastes like Peaches and Cream!

    Ooh, I was almost right on the ingredients! Couldn't figure out what the middle part was. Peach Schnapps, sounds delicious.

    Heh, I came back to tell you that I'd linked to it here on dabbled, not realizing my post had been linked on Craft and BoingBoing! Congrats, and thanks for having such a cool picture and recipe!

    I tried this shot, however the peach schnaps is lighter than the bailey's and kept floating up over the baileys...Is there a specific type of Schnaps used? Maybe mine doesn't have a high enough sugar content...Any other ideas? Even though it didn't float right, it still looked gross and tasted yummy :)
  • Kimberly Brown-Azzarello PRO 3y

    Hello Shots -- I simply poured my DeKypers (sp?) schanps first and didn't have any problem keeping it on the bottom. Pour the Bailey's slowly and carfully. Specifically, the instructions say 'float'. I had my grenadine in a squirt bottle, like ketchup at a picnic, and was able to really get a small stream to pull the Bailys down into the glass. I hope you have better luck. They do taste yummy, regardless.

    Add blue curacao to make it more colorful...

    pour the baileys over the back of a spoon,.

    In Czech Republic we know similar short-drink "Brain In Blood": drop of eggnog in Griotte shot. Or green variant "Bad Water Sprite`s Sperm" (green peppermint liquor and drop of eggnog).
