    Default Specific Gravities - Chambord & Blue Curacao

    I've just started to play with layering drinks, and the internet tells me that Chambord has a higher SG than Blue Curacao (both these figures appear to be brand-specific, so should be correct), but this never seems to work - the BC always tries to sink to the bottom.

    Is this just crap technique on my part (I do pour it over the back of a spoon) or is it likely that the figures are wrong? The figures I have are:

    DeKuyper Blue Curacao: 1.07
    Chambord Raspberry Liqueur: 1.128

    So theoretically the BC should stay on top, but it never does...I was hoping to do a grenadine/chambord/blue curacao layer from bottom to top (so kinda red/purple/blue) with something else on top (undecided as of yet).

    Can anyone shed any light?

    Or am I better off asking this question on a bartending/cocktail type forum (can anyone reccomend a good one?)

    I know that's a lot of questions :P

    Thanks in advance.

    I think that the numbers are incorrect. Your logic matches mine.. the lower the SG the "lighter" it is; IOW the BC should float over the "higher" SG spirit.

    Best,
