Halloween has more than its share of gore and gross outs, so why wouldn't that be reflected in a shot glass? The Brain Hemorrhage looks vile, with what looks like floating brain matter suspended in a sea of bloody liquid. In reality, it's a peaches and cream shooter that only looks deadly. With Bailey's, peach schnapps and a touch of grenadine in the mix, it's almost too bad these rarely get mixed up much at other times of the year.


  • 3/4 fluid ounce peach schnapps
  • 1-2 tablespoon of Baileys
  • 1 teaspoon of grenadine


Step 1

  • Pour the schnapps into the shot glass and top gently with the Bailey's. The cream liqueur should float grotesquely at the top of the glass, hanging eerily like disembodied brain matter.

Step 2

  • Drop the grenadine in, which should drift to the bottom, completing the picture and working better than peeled grape “eyeballs” ever could at grossing people out.
