Chef's notes

It can be quite a job whisking up the foam and it may take several minutes. Next time, I will use the whipping syphon as that should do the job much more efficiently. When layering the ingredients, you are not expected to make rows of neat stripes (for which you would use a different type of glass anyway). You should aim for a slightly blended appearance so that it resembles the colours of the sea, sand and waves
