Flaming shot fail
Lighting up your drink can of course seem a good way to heat it up. In Italy the sambuca is often put on fire before drinking it as an after dinner shot.
Another important reason for putting your drink on fire is the taste effect. It condenses the flavors and makes the taste deeper and stronger.
But is most of the cases people put their drinks on fire because of the cool effect of it. It’s all about the presentation! Putting drinks on fire has always had a strange effect on people… young and old!
There are some alcohols which are very well fitted for lighting at room temperature: chartreuse or Bacardi 151 and some high proof (stroh) rum. Just float them on top of your shot, light’m up and job done…
So far for the serious part…
