Lisa,

Check out our Layering page in the Tips section.  When you are on that page, there is a link to a specific gravities chart to help you with the weight of each ingredient and the order you should add them.

Hope that helps.

Cheers,

Dan

i work in a cafe and some of our drinks need to be layered...only thing i can think of is maybe u should try to add the ice before u put the blue curaco in the drink....that might help

Cream is lighter than Blue Curacao so it won't layer.


Try this one instead:

The cream will float on most liquers she's correct.. you have to put that on top
