Specific Density Chart

Home > Bartending Guide > Specific Density Chart

When making layered drinks (Pousse Cafe), you need to know which ingredients are heavier than the others. The technique is simple; the heaviest liquor is poured into the glass first, and the lighter ones are layered carefully on top with the lightest one on top.

This chart lists the densities of various alchohols from lightest to heaviest. Actual values may vary according to brand. In general, the higher the proof number of the alcohol, the lighter it will be. Unknown values signify that the exact specific density value is unknown, however the liquor is still in approximately the right location in the chart.
