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, and we found it both odd and coincidental that B-52's and hang gliders are all flying machines. We then started describing the Hang Glider as the 'little brother' of the B-52.


Combine room-temperature Baileys and Kahlua in bottom of an apertif glass or larger shot glass (this will represent the Earth). Combine Orange Vodka and Blue Curacao in a shaker cup over ice. Chill thoroughly. Using the back of a spoon, carefully layer contents of the shaker cup atop the Baileys/Kahlua 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').
