Buttery Nipple at O'Malley's On Main
I've been a personal quest to find the best buttery nipple in the state of California since I discovered the shooter a few years ago. Lucky for me, the best so far happens to be in Seal Beach. Peter, a bartender at O'Malley's on Main Street, happens to be one of the few who really knows what he's doing when it comes to this misunderstood cocktail.
Peter begins by filling a glass with ice, then pours butterscotch schnapps a little more than halfway up, and then fills it to the top with Bailey's Irish Cream. The cream in the Bailey's causes it to float on top of the schnapps, creating a layering effect for the perfect buttery nipple.
He is also one of the few bartenders who will actually offer to make it as a cocktail, instead of the typical shooter form. Lightly stir the buttery nipple with your straw and enjoy a drink that has the power to make some bartenders blush.
