Brain Hemorrhage Shot Recipe

To enjoy your Halloween party to the fullest, the brain hemorrhage shot (also known as brain damage shot) is the perfect and funniest drink. When it is made perfectly like a proper bartender, it will have a weird look.

This drink looks quite creepy, as shown in the picture, but it also tastes delicious. When you serve to a newcomer who has never tasted this before, might be afraid to take it by seeing the disgusting and creepy looks. Let’s dive into the amazing steps to make a perfect Brain hemorrhage shot.


  • 20ml chilled Peach Schnapps.
  • 10ml Chilled Bailey’s Irish cream.
  • 2-3 drops of Grenadine.

Tools & Equipments:

  1. Bar Spoons.
  2. Shoot Glass.

How to make Brain Hemorrhage Shot:

  1. Pour the peach schnapps into the shot glass.
  2. Pour Irish Cream liquor over the peach schnapps very softly. Wait for few moments until the Irish cream liquor starts looking like blood.
  3. Carefully drop the grenadine through the baileys to create the nastiest look.
  4. Serve the Halloween drink to your guests and watch their reactions.

About this Drink:

Though you can make this drink anytime you wish, it’s renowned for Halloween parties. Sometimes, appearance can’t justify taste or virtue. The same goes for the Brain Damage/ Brain Hemorrhage drink. Though it’s creepy to look at, it’s delicious.

As instructed above, use chilled Irish cream, which helps to layer it easily. When you add 2-3 drops of grenadine, it creates that brainy look. The process of making the Hemorrhage drink is enjoyable and easy. If you have never made this drink by yourself, try one and enjoy the funny process.


Variation is something that people create from the original one by changing the value of ingredients. You can also create your own variation by experimenting. If you want to change the look, you can add a different colour syrup. In the same way, you can add more or less schnapps to see how it tastes.

Usually, there are two well-known variations of Brain Hemorrhage shots with the same original concept.

Alien Brain Hemorrhage Shot:

This variation of the Brain damage shot is the same, except you have to add 2-3 drops of blue curacao and grenadine. Because of the blue curacao, the drink looks more quaint.

Zombie Brain Shot:

This variation is quite different than the original one and the above one. An additional ingredient called creme de menthe adds green colour (the colour of zombie’s brain) to the shoot.

  2. Top with the Irish cream.
