FLAMING COCKTAILS  
 

Flaming beverages include cocktails and other mixed drinks that contain a small amount of flammable high-proof alcohol, which is ignited prior to consumption. The flames are decorative and do not change the flavor of the drinks noticeably. Flaming cocktails are more spectacular in dimly lit surroundings where the flames are more visible. Drinkers should be aware that the drinkware may remain quite hot for a while after the flames are extinguished, which could result in burns.

 
   

Tips for bartenders and hosts

 

The most important thing to remember is to never allow anyone to drink a cocktail which is still on fire. Never give an inexperienced or slightly buzzed drinker a drink which is still on fire. Granted, it's not unheard of to drink a flaming liquid; but as a general rule, if it doesn't feel right, don't do it.

When you make a flaming cocktail, you should place a little bit of alcohol in a spoon, light it, drop it into the drink, and stand back in order to avoid being burned.
