Specific Gravity of Liqueurs

The specific gravity or relative density is used to make layered drinks. You have to pour the heaviest liquors or liqueurs first, then slowly pour the lighter ones on top. Here are some tips on Floating and Layering.

Tip: You can change the specific gravity of a liqueur. To make a liqueur heavier, add sugar and to make it lighter, add vodka. I got this tip from the DeKuyper Web Site where I also got some of the specific gravity of their liqueurs.
