One of the most popular shots is the B-52. There are three layers in this drink, and the layers almost naturally want to float on top of each other. The drink is a good way to practice layering skills. A B52 shot set on fire is one of the best ways to try an exotic drink and it does not alter or change the taste of a shooter. Even so, the unique way of serving is still popular at parties despite its unaffected taste.
- Gran Gala is a closer substitute for Grand Marnier as it also has a brandy base, but Cintreau is a popular substitute for Grand Marnier.
- It is also possible to light the B-52 by itself without the rum, as long as your Grand Marnier is at room temperature.
