This mini Pousse Cafe cocktail is a celebration of the season producing the flavors of a Cinnamon Candy Apple with a beautiful layered effect. The tequila I used is not colored though I wanted to add drama to the drink by adding a bit of natural vegetable dye.
I studied many bartenders' methods of how to layer cocktails, each using a different technique. I found the drink layered easily merely using a small dining spoon placed at a 45 degree angle above the lower layer. The key to success is the pouring speed of the second layer. If one becomes impatient the layers will mix. Slow and steady layers the cocktail in this case!
Please note: this is a Martini-style cocktail meaning it is all alcohol with no mixer so is strong. Please drink responsibly!
*larger batches of the cocktail can be made by multiplying the ingredients by the number of cocktails. I made a batch of 4, ensuring the proportions for each were maintained.
