The Quick Fox is a layered cocktail – three layers, to be precise. Pouring three layers without messing any of them up is slightly tricky and takes a bit of practice. The specific gravity of a liqueur from one brand to the next can also vary, so you need to try this one out with the exact brands you plan on using to know which order they will float in.
This cocktail uses Irish cream, a melon liqueur like Midori and a coffee liqueur like Kahlua. If you use Bailey’s, Kahlua and Midori, you’ll want the Kahlua on the bottom, followed by the Bailey’s and topped with the Midori. But I prefer the flavor of Carolan’s Irish Cream, and it’s actually lighter than the Midori, so the Midori unexpectedly went to the middle of this one, even though I poured it last. Oh, the fun and magic of layered drinks!
