Pousse Cafe Recipe

This sweet, striped wonder is the original from which the whole idea of shooters sprang. The trick to making one successfully is to build the drink carefully, starting with the heaviest constituent and pouring each of the subsequent ones over the back of a bar spoon, so each colour remains separate until you tilt the glass as you drink from it.


  • Grenadine – 1 part
  • Yellow Chartreuse – 1 part
  • Crème de Cassis – 1 part
  • White Crème de Menthe – 1 part
  • Green Chartreuse – 1 part
  • Brandy – 1 part


  1. Pour each of the ingredient in the order given into a pousse café glass, so that each ingredient float on the preceding one.
  2. Serve.
