How to Make a White Gorilla

Learn how to make a white gorilla from the bartenders at Barcelona Bar NYC in this Howcast video.


OK, shot drinkers. We have ourselves a signature shot here at the Barcelona Bar. It is called the white gorilla.

There's a famous albino gorilla by the name of Snowflake. He was the Barcelona shot-drinking champion. You should check him out. It's an interesting story.

So take a little bit of ice. Throw it into a shot glass. We're going to use three ingredients on this one. It sounds like it's going to be bad but trust me on this one, it's going to be a delicious shot.

You're going to do tequila, about a full ounce pour of that. We're going to take coffee liqueur, another half ounce or so of that. And then our favorite, Irish cream. Mix it in to give it that white albino gorilla taste and look. Mix it all up. Strain it into your glass.

You can either do this with any one of your bar tools or you can just do it straight out of the shaker itself. You've got that nice white gorilla flavor, nice white gorilla look. Enjoy and say hi to Floquet, the white gorilla over in Barcelona.
