Pousse lamour 01

Not to be confused with L'Amour cocktail.

This may best be accomplished, by pouring the different materials from a sherry wine glass. The accompanying illustration will give a tolerable idea of how this delicious French drink should be prepared. It requires a steady hand and careful manipulation to succeed in making a perfect Pousse.
