Layered drink

A layered (or "stacked") drink, sometimes called a pousse-café, is a kind of cocktail in which the slightly different densities of various liqueurs are used to create an array of colored layers, typically two to seven. The specific gravity of the liquid ingredients increases from top to bottom. Liqueurs with the most dissolved sugar and the least alcohol are densest and are put at the bottom. These include fruit juices and cream liqueurs. Those with the least water and the most alcohol, such as rum with 75% alcohol by volume, are floated on top.

My Version

My own little version of a layered drink I created with orange juice, cherry juice, one lone cherry, and peach schnapps with peach vodka. I have no clue what to call it yet, but I'd say it's similar to a Fuzzy Navel.

The pop-it Rocket

A delicious and patriotic non-alcoholic drink comprised of layered lemonade and sprite! fun fact: lemonade has a higher density than sprite because it has more sugar! You can try the Pop-it Rocket at Fiiz Drinks in Utah.
