Science side of tumblr please tell us how the hell this is possible
The colored liquids have different densities! The Red is the most dense so it’s at the bottom, and so forth with the colors.
ok we are happy now thank you
There is also alternativeley a product called gelling gum, which even in same density drinks will gel the surface of the drink making the layers seperate.
This was employed by Heston Blumenthal for his Victorian feast, by using a special bottle where you drink from the bottom as well as the gelling agent he could have you drink a glass with five seperate flavors amd make you taste them in order.
This allowed him to present to his guests a drink that tasted like Toffee, Hot Butter Toast, Custard, Cherry Tart AND Turkey within a single class while having the drink retain a singular shade of pink. Just like the Drink Me Potion of Alice and Wonderland.
This is called Molecular gastronomy and its crazy shit.
