Just made myself one of these: http://imbibemagazine.com/scorpion-reef/ ... which is quite nice.

But with that heavy Angostura float and five spice topping, it got me wondering ... what do most people do?

Do you use a straw and let the float become an exciting little end to your journey?

Do you skip the straw and get a little off the top with each sip?

Or do you sacrifice that lovely layering and mix it all together for the sake of bold flavor?

Just curious. I think I'm going with option 1 tonight.

I'd say that depends on the float, and the drink overall.

With bitters like Angostura (and this drink) I'd probably slowly stir it in as I drank. With an overproof floater on most drinks I usually let it do whatever it wants.

I’m with Sandbartender; it depends on the drink. I just had a Citrus Rush and mixed it up a bit. When I have a Buz-Tai, I leave it alone, since the lime shell is supposed to dispense the float as the drink is moved around.
