  • Would you be able to use the 210s in a cocktail that is meant to stay separated, say a tequila sunrise? I’m a food stylist, and sometimes I’m required to make a cocktail for a photo that is meant to have a float and it’s sometimes a struggle to keep the two parts separated. Thanks!

      210S does not seem like the right ingredient for this application. If you are trying to keep things completely separated you may need a thickener so that the bottom liquid does not combine over time. The bottom liquid could either be a gel or thickened with something like Methocel F50 so that it is clear but viscous.
