I’m a visual learner and now I’m an alcoholic. Thanks, Obama.
I learn better from experience, one of each please!
White Russians though
my brother got me wasted from white Russians when I was 7. What a good babysitter.
I love this proportional presentation, but it could be a little confusing since some of these drinks are meant to be layered (meaning they would look more or less exactly like the illustrative diagrams) while some are meant to be mixed normally.
A pousse-cafe (spelling) in particular should not be mixed, as the flavors weren’t picked for going well together but for looking neat side by side.
It’s meant to be poured one liquer at a time, slowly over the back of a spoon, in order of densest to least dense so that the liquids form individual distinct layers, which are then sipped one at a time through a straw.
The entire point of the drink is to show off the bartender’s skill at layering the liquids, and the visual appeal of the rainbow that results. Mixing it would give you something muddy and unpalatable.
