5 Drink Recipes You Can Set On Fire

Pages: 1 2 3 4 5 6

Have you been looking for a way to take your drink-mixing skills to the next level? We’ve got 5 great drinks that can make anybody with a liquor cabinet and a lighter look like a master mixologist. But first let us explain why you may want to set you a shot on fire.

Flavor: Burning alcohol will lower the liquid content of the drink, condensing the flavors to make the drink’s taste richer and deeper. In the recipe for a Flaming Doctor Pepper discussed below, the burning caramelizes the taste of the amaretto, and gives the drink its signature flavor.

Warmth: Setting things on fire makes them warmer, right? If you’re drinking the flaming liquid on its own and not mixing it into a larger drink, lighting it is a good way to heat your drink up. When served as an after-dinner drink, Italians often light their snifters of Sambuca for a few seconds. In addition to enriching the flavor, as discussed above, the warmth of the drink makes for the perfect finale to your Carbonara-eating extravaganza. Just blow the flames out before the drink gets so hot you burn yourself.

Presentation: This is the big one. Most drinks you set ablaze involve lighting only one component of a larger mixed drink, so the flavor and warmth aren’t a big factor. The lighting of the drink is pure showmanship. Humans are drawn to flames fire is exciting and can really start the party. Done the right way, a flaming drink can also be very romantic. You can even invest in a classic Tiki-style volcano bowl. These large bowls hold a drink big enough to share, and the little ceramic volcano in the middle can be filled with booze and lit on fire. You then share your drink while enjoying the glow of the volcano. Remember to use straws.

Disclaimer: Never drink anything while it’s on fire, while flames are exciting there is no faster way to kill a party’s collective buzz than setting your own face on fire, blow it out before your throw it back!
