    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!?

    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!
