Tips for making Layered drinks

A Layered drink is bound to impress anyone who is served. it's mostly common in parties and Cocktail bars. Making a layered drink might sound like rocket science but all it needs is just a little practice. Although layered drinks are mostly associated with sweet drinks, hard liqueur such as vodka, rum, whiskey or even bitters are sometimes added to reduce the sugar content as well as give it a little punch.
The secret has a lot to do with the density of each drink mixed. The more sugar a drink has, the more dense the drink becomes therefore when making layered drinks it's best to choose different drinks with different densities. This simply means that the beverage with the most sugar would form the lower layer while the lighter drink would form the top layer. To know the density of each drink, check the amount of sugar in grams on the label at the back of the drink. The higher the sugar level, the more likely it is to settle at the bottom of the glass. If the drinks are cold, the layers would stay apart for a longer period of time.

What you'd Need

• Different colored drinks with different sugar contents
• Ice cubes (preferably small sized)
• A glass

How it's done:::
Step 1:
First thing to do is to place the ice cubes in the Glass

Step 2: Pour in the drink with a lesser density

Step 3: Next, gently add the drink with a higher density (Do this via a side of the glass).                      You'd notice this would go down to the bottom of the glass.

Once you're done, the layers should be floating on top of each other, not mixing with each other at all.

    1. Sure you can do a 3-4-5-6 drink combination, you just have to know the weight of each. Any large supermarket or mall would have the straws and umbrella.

    1. Glad to have you here funmi. As long as you know the specific gravity of each drink, you can use any. For the drink in the picture, all you need is Orange Juice , A syrup such as Grenadine or Zobo syrup, and little alcohol or Angostura bitters
