I found in a cocktail book the receip for this shooter.
As it's explained there, vodka should be in the middle, between grenadine sirup and curacao,
but, anytime i try, i always get the curacao falling under so the vodka goes on top.

besides, how in the world can vodka stay under curacao. Layered shooters have their line-up defined by the concentration of sugar.
Seems quite hard to me that vodka might have more sugar than curacao. Should I go for a sparticular brand?

I don't think changing brands will help.  Check out the specific gravities chart here and you'll see that white spirits like Vodka are at the top of the list.  I think you'll find the vodka will rise to the top.

Another way of doing this is in three parts, like the Red White and Blue shooter.

Hope that helps.

Cheers,

Dan

Here's something better. You need grenadine, white creme de cacao, and blue curacao. It is better explained if you go to this page:
