First Take the spoon upside down and gently layer the amaretto on top of the creme de cacao. This technique can take a lil bit tricky, but by the 2nd or third drink u should be able to master it

Step 3: LAYER 2

what are you, a bartender? U can feel free to recreate this drink, however the concept is copyrighted by me, here and on www.metacafe.com lol glad you liked it, they taste great too!
Too late. My roommate was making these for us after having learned this one years ago at mixology school. It's a fine treat, though, so good job on spreading the word. The more people who know about it, the less time I spend explaining it to the bartender!
First time I had something like this was in 1991, in college. IIRC, the clear liquid we used was reddish, leading us to call the drink a 'brain' rather than a jellyfish.

Hope the OP was joking about the 'copyright' line.
Are you referring to a brain hemorrhage or a brain shot? They're similar in that they all contain bailey's irish creme The differences? The brain hemorrhage (AKA alien brain hemorrhage) has peach schnapps. The brain shot has shaken strawberry vodka and lime juice...and the bailey's is added through a straw instead of being layered. They're all interesting looking. I'm just curious if you meant either of those or a different drink altogether.
Copyright by you? You only have to google the drink and find it plastered all over the internet in bartender books and other publications. On Google : Results 1 - 10 of about 606,000 English pages for jellyfish drink. (0.26 seconds), that is "Filtered" results, I do not include language specific sites so the true total may be in the millions.

Is anyone else having trouble getting their first two layers to stay seperate? I can go as slowly as possible, or as quickly, in as many different variables as i can think of, but I just cant keep the first two layers seperate! What the hell!?
EviLNinJa (author)  jrh1435 years ago
What you need is to try different brands of creme de cacao and amaretto. Different brands have slightly different densities.

Check out a Drink Density Chart http://www.drinknation.com/bartending/densitychart. For more instructions on layering drinks, check this out... http://www.drinknation.com/bartending/howto_layer.php
The link to the page changed. I grabbed the updated one for anyone (like me) who just found this epic 'ible.

Thanks a lot for the info and for the links! Excellent resource for the hobbyist like myself. I'm gonna try the syringe thing next time. Great tip!

I believe it helps if the liquids are chilled... I'm not really sure how you're doing it, but in my experience that has always been the issue when I try to layer drinks.

Thanks for the reply. My ingredients were chilled at the time. In fact, I always chill my liquor prior to a party (saves on ice). I'm guessing it has more to do with brand of ingredients, like EviLNinJa (above) suggests, as well as technique. Thank you still for your input!

Yea it is similar to the brain and also the duck fart which uses midori instead of the schnapps. Thanx for watching! check out my other Videos on my myspace... www.myspace.com/sonicintox
That is amazing! Looks cool, I could like throw it on somebody and they'll get all scared. Good Instructable!

looks pretty good. Very similar to the shooter Bloody Brain. Bloody brain is made up of Irish Creme, Grenadine and Peach Schnapps.
