The Mind Eraser is another layered drink, much like The Pousse-Café. Be sure to read our article “Layered Drinks” to learn the technique for building one. The Mind Eraser is a more modern recipe and less aesthetically appealing than many other layered beverages (it’s hard to see the boundary between the vodka and club soda layers), but it’s also one of the tastiest.
1 oz coffee liqueur (such as Kahlua)
1 oz vodka
1 oz club soda
Layer the ingredients in the order provided in a Pousse-Café or other tall glass.
Once you’ve built yourself a Mind Eraser adorn it with a short straw for the finishing touch. If done correctly, you should use the straw to suck down the whole drink in one gulp, from the bottom up. It’s a great way to kick off a party and this drink definitely lives up to its name.
