Keep the Bar Hot with These Flair-Filled Flaming Recipes

Last updated 6 years ago

Flair is an important quality for any bartender. It will keep your customers interested and entertained. Here are some flaming recipes that can help you develop your flair.

Bailey’s Comet

A Bailey’s Comet is made with Bailey’s Irish Cream and Butterscotch Schnapps in equal parts, some Goldschläger, a bit of 151-proof rum, and some cinnamon. First you shake the Bailey’s, Schnapps, and Goldschläger with ice in a cocktail shaker. Then you add a shallow layer of 151-proof rum. Once you light the rum, sprinkle the cinnamon on top and watch it flare up.

Flaming Dr. Pepper

A Flaming Dr. Pepper is made of ¾ shot of amaretto, ¼ shot of 151-proof rum, and a ½ glass of beer. Add the amaretto to a shot glass and top it off with the rum. Then place the shot glass in a pint glass and fill it up with beer up to the top of the shot glass. Light the rum and after it has burned for a few moments, blow out the flame for a delicious drink that tastes just like Dr. Pepper.

Pumpkin Pie

Create a shot with 1/3 shot Kahlua on the bottom, 1/3 shot Bailey’s Irish Cream in the middle, and 1/3 shot Tequila on top. Light the tequila and sprinkle cinnamon on the top of the drink. After it has finished burning, the drink will taste just like pumpkin pie.

Flaming Gorilla

Pour 1 part Peppermint Schnapps, 1 part Kahlua, and 1 part 151-proof Rum into a shot glass in that order. Light the drink and let it burn for 15 seconds, then extinguish the flame.
