Serve inShot glass
How to make:
Refrigerate ingredients then LAYER in chilled glass by carefully pouring in the following order.
|1/4 fl oz||Grenadine/pomegranate syrup (2:1)|
|1/4 fl oz||Galliano Espresso Coffee liqueur|
|1/4 fl oz||Giffard Peppermint Pastille crème de menthe|
|1/4 fl oz||Triple sec liqueur (40% alc./vol.)|
|1/4 fl oz||Bourbon whiskey|
|1/4 fl oz||White overproof rum|
The amount of sugar in each liqueur and their temperature will impact their specific gravity and so how successfully they layer. This is more a test of patience and a steady hand than a drink.
A pousse-café is now a term for any multi-layered cocktail. The term originally seems to have been a general term for a mixture of liqueurs and/or spirits served after dinner, and most probably originated in France.
- 0.9 standard drinks
- 29.39% alc./vol. (58.78° proof)
- 13.2 grams of pure alcohol
