The Secrets of Layering a Shot

I bet you didn’t know that when it comes to Layering a shot both the glass and the layering device play an important role. In fact, most of the people love to serve shots at a party or an event but hardly understand how to layer a drink with different ingredients in it.
Layering shots can be fun; you can make a drink look complicated yet stunning. Imagine putting different shades to a drink. Wouldn’t that make your experience of consuming it much more pleasurable? Here are a few secrets to layering a great shot for your party.


  • Choose different liquor varieties and if required some different syrups to make your drink more intriguing: You can use light cream for layering the shots. Syrups and other ingredients give great balance to the drink and add texture. Always try to contrast the adjacent layers, for example: you can try layering opaque liquor with a colorful one.
  • Determine gravity of the liquor and use it to form layer: Different types of liquors have different gravity. A gravity chart of different liquors should be referred to before forming the layers.
  • Determine the volume of each ingredient you use: Volume of the ingredients play an important role, not only to add symmetry to the layers but also to balance the flavors in the drink.

Keep In Mind: When it comes to layering and understanding the gravity of liquor, there is a secret rule of thumb. Most of the syrups have high sugar content and less of alcohol, therefore they tend to sit at the bottom, while, liquors with low sugar content and high alcohol tend to be at the top.

You should always opt for a shot glass that has a shorter mouth. Wider-mouth glasses usually require a lot more patience. Try putting your glass into the fridge before serving.
