4 Jan 11 2
Layering a cocktail is really very simple. Once you have ascertained the specific gravity of each spirit, just begin with the heaviest spirit on the bottom and layer the rest of the ingredients in order from heaviest to lightest on top of each other.

It also helps to chill or freeze each liqueur before use.
