pousse café glass


Type:

Glasses & Vessels

Description:

Traditionally a sort of narrow, tall cordial glass often to contain a slightly greater volume of liquid than a standard 1 ounce cordial. The Pousse Café and its variations were liqueur drinks poured in layers so the heaviest liqueur or syrup would settle in the bottom and progressively lighter (lower specific gravity) liqueurs or spirits of differing colors would float atop one another creating a layered rainbow effect. Pousse Cafes are meant to be sipped one layer at a time, like a chocolate sampler.
