Playing with fire

It is not always great recipes that make your reputation as a great cook. People easily fall for gimmicks like chopping onion like a buzz saw or flipping pizza dough a mile high. Though these take time to master, you can try a easy to learn gimmick to make your reputation as a great chef. By setting fire to food !

Nothing attracts attention as much as a flaming dish or a cocktail on fire. These are HOT. Use them wisely !

Core idea :

Now, lets do the same trick with cocktails

Mix your favorite cocktail in a separate glass, but skip the alcohol. Pour alcohol in a separate glass and ignite it. Pour the flaming liquid into the cocktail glass.Cover the glass to extinguish fire.

Idiot proof recipes

Pour rum on top of your favorite cocktail and set it alight.

Pour rum in a glass. Beer in another. Light the rum and pour it into beer.

Shake Campari and lemon juice in a cocktail mixer with some ice. Pour into a glass. Heat some brandy until warm. Pour brandy into the glass, holding a match in the stream to create a blue flame, then gulp the lot. The longer the stream, the more impressive the flame, the more solid your reputation becomes.

Pour tequila into shot glass. Place lemon slice on top. Sprinkle with tbsp of white sugar. Pour a small amount of rum over lemon and sugar. Set on fire.
