5 Butterscotch Schnapps Cocktail Recipes You Must try at Home

Butterscotch Schnapps

It’s hard to go past butterscotch schnapps. The buttery sweet taste provides a versatile flavour that works both as a stand-alone drink and also with some desserts. Following are some of our favourite recipes that you simply must try. Share these recipes with friends, or indulge alone – we won’t tell anyone!

1. Butterscotch Schnapps Sticky Date Pudding

Perfect for the festive season, this flavour sensation is sure to leave a warm afterglow.

  • Dates
  • Butter
  • Sugar (brown and white)
  • Eggs
  • Flour
  • Cinnamon
  • Nutmeg
  • Fresh cream
  • Bicarbonate Soda
  • Butterscotch Schnapps
  • Vanilla bean seeds
How to Make:

Start by preheating your oven to 175c (fan forced 165c).

Put the dates into a bowl and mix them with a tablespoon of bicarb soda. Pour in 200ml of boiling water, or enough to cover the dates. Let it stand for 5 minutes to soften the dates, and then drain the water.

Now blend the dates in a food processor until they are completely pureed.

Get a non-stick muffin pan and brush it with butter. You’ll need 6 slots roughly ¾ of a cup in size.

With a new bowl, whisk butter and sugar together until it turns a pale colour. Add eggs, cinnamon, nutmeg and flour and mix well. Mix to taste.

Now fold in whipped cream and the pureed dates. Pour the whole mix into the muffin pan and bake for 30 minutes.

The sauce

In a saucepan, melt butter, brown sugar and 70ml of cream. Whisk until the consistency is smooth. Simmer for two minutes and add vanilla bean seeds. Add a dash of butterscotch schnapps.

2. Butterscotch Bliss

This drink definitely favours those with a sweet tooth! Aptly named, one sip of this and you’ll be in Butterscotch heaven.


In a cocktail shaker, add the Irish Cream, butterscotch schnapps, Jägermeister, and cinnamon schnapps. Shake well.
Take the raw sugar and frost the rim of a martini glass.

Pour the drink into the glass and throw in a pinch of cinnamon for that extra zing.

3. Slippery Nipple

Let’s go back to the 90s! The guys are still dressing like Sonny Crocket from Miami Vice, and “Smells Like Teen Spirit” is the no 1 album on the charts.

The slippery nipple was at the peak of its popularity in the 90s and as it turns out, it’s dead easy to make. There are only two ingredients required for a Slippery Nipple;

How to Make:

Pour the butterscotch schnapps into a shot glass and drizzle the Irish Cream on top. The idea with this drink is that the Irish cream lines the throat as the schnapps follows through. Although, butterscotch schnapps can hardly be considered harsh on the throat.

Settle in and enjoy while watching reruns of Xena Warrior Princess or Baywatch (or not).

4. Salted Butterscotch White Russian

This is a take on the popular White Russian that’s been around since the 1950s. Neither the Black Russian nor White Russian drinks actually have anything to do with the country; the name is derived due to the principal ingredient Vodka.

5. Butterscotch Coffee Cocktail

The Butterscotch Coffee Cocktail, besides being fun to say, blends two liqueurs along with a hot coffee.


Prepare your fav cup of coffee however you like and stir in the alcoholic ingredients. Great to enjoy as the sun goes down, especially on a cooler evening.
