Bandera Mexicana

1/3 oz grenadine 1/3 oz white tequila 1/3 oz green crème de menthe Carefully pour in layers.  It will look like a Mexican Flag.

 

Drink two or ten and proceed to vomit in the gutter.  Wake up in a Tijuana jail with no bail money.  ENJOY!

First, you need five glasses. Fill four with equal amounts of water (two to three tablespoons). The fifth will remain empty until the end of the demonstration...
If you don't want to be bothered with that, add different color drops of food coloring to each glass, and then mix in one tablespoon of sugar into the first glass, two into the second, three into the third, and four into the fourth...
Still, this is an easily drinkable rainbow - if you have a fondness for sugar.

10 tablespoons of sugar in 10 tablespoons of water... Gah

As a current bartender, allow me to state that;

I bet you actually order that in McO'Irish bars, on the day you refer to as "Saint Patties Day", whilst wearing a t-shirt with a four-leaf clover on it, whilst really being a 9th generation American, whose only real relation to Ireland is his GGGGGGGrandmother who was raped by an Irish wolf hound.

Hey! If I want to order a fifth Irish Car Bomb at Seamus O'Blarney's, and then immediately spew the green food coloring tinted contents of my stomach all over your patrons after playing Dropkick Murphys on the jukebox ten times in a row, then I god damn will. And don't go telling me I'm not Irish, I saw Michael Collins twice.

Take 5 bottles of vodka. Put one color of skittles in 1 bottle, 2nd color in the 2nd, etc. Wait till color of vodka matches what color skittle you put in there. Do one shot of each. NOW you've chased the rainbow.

Quinine in tonic water fluoresces in ultraviolet. Add pink lemonade (or Rose's Mojito Passion) and you have a drink that's pink in normal light, but blue/purple in blacklight.

i.imgur.com 

Original Article suggests 2L gin or vodka (the quinine in gin would also help), 9L tonic water, and 3-4 bottles of Rose's Mojito Passion or pink lemonade concentrate. Add ice before serving.

The article leaves off there, but these guys suggest illuminating a quinine-rich drink with an ultraviolet LED: Ooh, pretty! You can also get a yellow color with riboflavin, aka vitamin B2. Anyone for jello shots? You can also infuse a neutral oil with chlorophyll (hmm, grapesed vs. cilantro? mint?) and the chlorophyll will glow red under UV. Good idea for a salad topping, not so great in a cocktail. Man, the things you learn on a field trip to the Rainbow Factory.

Not even close. I order a half and half in the quasi Irish pub downtown because ordering a black and tan is a good way to get punched. I'm also scandanavian descent. My ancestors raped and pillaged the Irish.

Never did it professionally, but I bartended during my college years (drinking was legal at 18). I took a course and the final exam was to make a drink. I decided to make the layered drink, which the instructor claimed was impossible.

Kahlua, Creme de Cocoa, brandy and cream. It tasted very nice. It was a total girly drink.

Bartender took a sip and pronounced me the valedectorian, so I made a whole bunch of them and the other students passed them around.

Just make sure you use things that are compatible and realize that it is probably mostly women who will like the sugary stuff.

I agree with a poster above about black and tans. They are gorgeous when the bartender can get that line just right between the two layers.
