Red, White & Blue

 
 

½ oz Framboise (raspberry) liqueur
½ oz half and half
½ oz blue Curaçao

Here's another cool drink that mixes our flags colors together. Starting with the Framboise, layer each ingredient into a shot glass using the back of a spoon. If it all mixes together, you've done it wrong. There should be a layer of red, white and blue.
