A shooter made of an ounce and a half of vodka, half an ounce blue curaçao, and a splash of grenadine. The shooter is purple in color, named after the popular children's game, The Hungry Hungry Hippos. Origin: Mistaking "Buttery Nipples" for "Hungry Hippos" in the lyrics of the song "Shots" by LMFAO and Lil' John. Created by Jeanette Castillo, Kyle Dodd, and Jaimee Beck in 2012.
"Can we get 4 Hungry Hippo shooters?"
"Buttery Nipples?! I thought they were saying Hungry Hippos!"
