Angel's Tip (or Tit)

Also called a rainbow cordial, the Pousse Café is a style of after-dinner drink composed of various liqueurs skillfully layered in a narrow, straight cordial glass. Because of their differing weights and densities, the individual layers of ingredients remain distinct. This sweet take on a rainbow cordial is an adventurous cocktail with a blasphemous name.

What to buy: White crème de cacao and maraschino liqueur can be found at most liquor stores and online.

Game plan: To float liquid in a cocktail, place the tip of a spoon perpendicular to the inside edge of the glass, turn the curve of the spoon toward the ceiling, and slightly angle the spoon downward. Slowly pour the liquid to be floated down the spoon toward the inside of the glass; so long as the liquid is less dense than the other liquids in the glass, it will float.
