Inverted Traffic Light
Fill cocktail glass with ice. Pour in the 1oz. of Peach Schnapps, then add orange juice 3/4 to the top and shake. Slowly add the 1/2oz. of Grenadine (watch it sink to the bottom of the glass). In a mixer, mix the 1/2oz. of Blue Curacao with the 1/2oz. of Vodka then, slowly strain into the cocktail glass (filled with oj and Grenadine). Voila! Your inverted Traffic Light. Note: The drink is consumed in layers and therefore, not stirred.
The purpose on mixing the Blue Curacao with the Vodka is to enable the Blue to "float". Since it is a syrup in itself, if poured alone, the Blue Curacao would sink to the bottom, mix with the Grenadine and cause a hideous purple mess. When poured successfully, this drink makes an excellent conversation piece and can result in a rewarding night.
How do I pour? What is 'cl', 'oz' and 'pt'? How should I handle glassware?.|
