I think it’s about time a classic shot drink was immortalised in sock form, and the B-52 is perfect for the job!

Basically a layered shot cocktail comprising of coffee liqueur, Irish cream, and an orange liqueur, this little devil should, when prepared properly, separate into 3 distinct layers. The B-52 sock has layers, too – 3 cabled layers of stylised coffee beans, irish knots and orange segments running in neatly worked stripes from a toe-up cast-on, up the foot and onto the leg, with an afterthought heel and round toe.
