Why is water at the bottom of a immiscible liquid?

Water is only at the bottom of a mixture of immiscible liquids if it is the densest liquid. If the other liquid is denser than water, water will be at the top, as would occur in a mixture of water and mercury in a beaker. The density of water is 1.00 g/ml, mercury is 13.5 g/ml and olive oil is about 0.85 g/ml. Therefore water will be on the bottom of an oil/water mixture, but will be on the top of a mercury/water mixture.
