We developed this shot for the Halloween edition of our fan’s video series, Cheap Shots With Dan. As you can see from the photo, this drink is meant to be layered. The trick for layering is to start with the most sugary, lowest-proof alcohol and move your way up. And it helps to pour over a spoon to slowly add in each ingredient so they don’t combine.
SF Trick or Treat
.75 oz Midori
.5 oz Campari
.5 oz Fernet
Start by adding the Midori (40 proof). Then carefully layer on the Campari (48 proof). Finally, layer the Fernet on top (80 proof). You can also try adding 1/4oz of blue curacao on the bottom for a nice blue layer and a little more sweetness. Just use 1/2oz of Midori so as to not overfill the glass.
