Paradise Cocktail

This is a sort of "Pinterest" fail.
If you know what I mean

It's supposed to be layers of red, gold and topped with blue. Let me just say that is waaayyy harder than you think.

I even poured the blue curacao very slowly over the back of a spoon to keep it on the top without avail.

However, I will have you know that this is one tasty drink regardless of the pretty layers it's supposed to have.

Layered drink over ice
1/2 oz grenadine
2 oz light rum
2 oz malibu rum
3 oz pineapple juice
1 oz blue curacao

In the bottom of a tall glass add 1/2 oz (jigger) of grenadine, carefully fill with crushed ice to the top. 
In a cocktail shaker, mix the two rums and the pineapple juice, stir and pour over the grenadine ice slowly.  Top with Blue curacao.


Here's a photo of the ingredients.
