2 cl of sambuca
2 cl of whiskey cream liqueur
2 cl of absinthe
2 tablespoons of grenadine
The Hiroshima cocktail is a shot made layer by layer like the classic B52. It is not a difficult cocktail to prepare, but you have to be careful and pour the ingredients slowly, helping yourself with a spoon.
So let’s see the ingredients of the Hiroshima cocktail: the first layer is made of sambuca, then a layer of whiskey cream and finally one of absinthe. To create the explosion effect of the atomic mushroom, pour two tablespoons of grenadine on top, so that it falls, dragging the whiskey cream with it.
It’s nothing special, but it’s a nice shot cocktail to make and the taste isn’t too bad either: there is much worse in this category of drink.

How to make the Hiroshima cocktail
First of all, you will need a shot glass, the small ones, the chupito. Pour 2 cl of sambuca, then place the tip of the spoon on the edge of the glass, just above the sambuca and pour the whiskey cream. Now pour some drops of grenadine from above to give a minimum of inertia, wait for the force of gravity to take effect and then always helping yourself with the spoon pour the absinthe.
