Instructions

Invented by John R. Flora. OriGinated at Hawks Cay Resort in the Florida Keys. When made properly, this is an extraordinarily beautiful-looking drink; very eye-catching. The story is, one night four buzzed guys walked into my bar and asked me, . If there was ever a drink called a Hang Glider what would you put into it?. ” I thought of a hang glider sailing through the sky and clouds high above the Earth and voila the cocktail was born. Afterwards and after belting back a few the accidental similarities to the taste of the B-52 became apparent carefully layer contents of the shaker Collins Glass atop the Baileys/Kahlúa Mixture (this will represent the sky). Top this with 2 or 3 small dollops of Whipped Cream (representing the clouds). Finally add the cross-cut tip of a Mint leaf atop the Whipped Cream (this represents the ‘hang glider’).”
