This is one of those drinks that most people have never tried but everyone will be curious about. The pink and white tentacles of a Jellyfish against the deep blue sea may not the best image to encounter while swimming, but it sure does look cool in a drinking glass. You may want to practice at home a few times before attempting to impress others with this feat but practicing is half the fun. It will taste great even if it doesn't look right. It's a lot of fun to make a Jellyfish cocktail. It takes less than one minute to make but people will be talking about it for a long time.

To make a Jellyfish cocktail, you will need:

  • tall glass
  • metal spoon
  • 1/2 oz blue curaçao
  • 1/2 oz white sambuca
  • 1/2 oz Irish Cream liqueur
  • dash of grenadine
  1. Pour the blue curaçao into a tall glass.
  2. Gently pour the white sambuca on top. Pour it slowly over the back of a spoon so it falls gently to rest on top of the blue curaçao . It is very important not to let the layers mix in order to get the desired visual effect.
  3. Add a top layer of the Irish Cream liqueur in the same manner as the white sambuca, pouring gently so it floats on the top of the drink.
  4. Drop a dash of grenadine on top of the drink toward the middle. As it drops down, it will pull each layer with it to create the illusion of a Jellyfish swimming in the glass.This drink is meant to be consumed quickly.
  5. Drink up! If the drink starts to lose the Jellyfish effect, gently stir it with a spoon to get the layers moving again.
