How do you layer alcohol on top of each other ?

The main idea behind layering liquids is to pour them slowly over each other without having the desired liquid dive into the other one by mistake.

Surely there is science behind layering and you will need to know which ingredient is heavier then the other, otherwise your plan won’t work out !

In this case, we used a classic bar spoon ( on it’s opposite end, but you could use either side it just depends how much space you have inside the glass to work with ) and by holding it right on top of the butterscotch schnapps, we proceeded to pour the Irish Cream on top of the spoon having it slowly drip the Irish cream on top of the Butterscotch Schnapps. It is quite easy once you get the hang of it !
