Ever wonder how under-21s can enjoy layering drinks? Well wonder no more and check out this great video made by the folks at DatTwenty.
These guys really did some research! Here are the soda layering instructions they worked out.
INSTRUCTIONS: in the case of sodas the density is controlled by the amount of sugar in the drink. If you are going by 20oz bottles the rule of thumb is to have a soda with over 70g of sugar in the bottom. Then the middle soda should have around 40g of sugar. Then the top should have 10g or less (preferably 0g if you don't mind diet drinks). I also recommend that you get colors that contrast well against each other, this will help the layers stand out and make it look cool.
First step is easy. Take the soda with the highest sugar content and pour that into the glass first. Fill it up about a third of the way. Then take your layering tool and put it on top of the glass. Take the next soda with the medium amount of sugar and slowly pour it into the layering tool. This will help it form an initial layer on the bottom drink. Once you have that initial layer you can start pouring faster through the tool. Pour in as much as you like. I suggest doing another third of the way. Finally do the same thing with the soda with little sugar in it. Start off slow, form the layer, and then top it off.
And that's all there is too it, you can now enjoy your triple layered soda. In this video we used Mountain Dew Live Wire, Coke Life, and Diet Mountain Dew Code Red. It actually tasted pretty good. See what combinations you can come up with as well and put them in the comments.
You have a friend coming over for drinks. You open the fridge to check your stock. However, gasp, you only have a can of Guinness and a bottle of Miller Lite and no time to go to the store. What to do? If you were a gracious host you would give your guest the Guinness and have the Miller Lite yourself. Right?? Or would you take the Guinness yourself and offer the Miller to your friend? Hmmm... Dilemma... Rock and a hard place...
A win-win solution would be to make a layered drink out of the two beers and show off your bartender skills at the same time. The common wisdom is that Guinness can only be used for the top of a layered beer drink. Well there are a few beers that will actually layer on top of Guinness and Miller Lite is one of them. So, when you encounter this situation, the problem is solved if you have the Perfect Black and Tan Beer Layering Tool.
