How to make a traffic light drink

Updated February 21, 2017

Carefully layer the ingredients and you'll see all the colours of a traffic light. Serves 1.

Put the ice, Southern Comfort®, schnapps and orange juice in a shaker.

Shake six to eight times.

Pour into a cocktail glass.

Pour the Curacao over the back of a spoon so that it sinks to the bottom without mixing.

Float the raspberry cordial on top.


Pour the Southern Comfort® mix first, then float the cordial, and use green crème de menthe on the top and no Curacao to get a Cameroon Cooler.


Mixed drinks contain alcohol, so use moderation. Never drink and drive.
