Fail: Flailing Flag

What I Did: So I tried really hard to pour gently, even tried pouring over a spoon as suggested. These boozes just wanted to hug each other. There was no chance of layering. Whatsoever. I don’t get what I did wrong. Luckily my family will take alcohol in any form so none went to waste, but my dreams of offering a pretty and fancy drink were dashed by the wanton stubbornness of these liquors not wanting to keep to themselves.

My Result:

Next Time I Will: 
Maybe I’m supposed to chill the ingredients? Would have been nice to know if that is the case.

    Chilling will help, but your shot glasses are not narrow enough. There’s just too much surface area between the layers, allowing them to mix really quickly. Tall narrow shot glasses should work much better.

    Needs to be in tiny glasses!

    Take a spoon and have it just graze the alcohol that was poured before. Have it pour SLOWLY on the back of the spoon while moving the spoon slowly out. Maybe even rest the spoon on the side of the glass. You should be able to try this with all kinds of glasses.
