Drink: Wave the Irish Flag

Irish Flag
1 oz. Marie Brizard’s Green
Crème de Menthe
1 oz. Brady’s Irish Cream Liqueur
1 oz. Grand Marnier Cordon Rouge
(cognac/orange liqueur)
Pour the crème de menthe into a tall shot glass. Try not to get any up on the sides, pouring straight down into the center of the glass to complete the bottom layer.

Turn a bar spoon upside down. Place it inside the glass, with the tip of the spoon against the inside edge of the glass, above the first layer and not touching it. Slowly pour the Irish cream liqueur over the back of the spoon, moving the spoon up as the level of ingredients rises. Pour from the opposite side of where you’re holding the spoon. If the two ingredients mix up a little bit, give them a few seconds to settle.

Rinse off the spoon and slowly pour the Grand Marnier over the spoon to complete the top layer. You may want to practice this before the guests arrive to perfect your technique.
