Drinks on fire – yes these flaming cocktails will light you up.

There is something intriguing about fire, wether its a campfire or in a chimney. Fire can wake a feeling in all of us. But today I want to talk about drinks on fire or cocktails where you get to play a little with fire.

Lighting a match and expressing citrus oils through the fire over your cocktails or torching fruits, herbs or ganishes will instantly wake your senses, and give a new aspect to your sipping experience. The smell or taste will give a new dimension to your drink that you would have been left without, and I’m sure you will have the attention of the people around you, when you serve these drinks.

Below you’ll find five cocktails I’ve made using fire, and I hope that these will inspire you to make your own “drinks on fire”.

Have you tried to make a drink using fire ? I would love to hear about it in the comments below.

Be careful when you use fire in the making of cocktails. Be in control of what is happening, be aware, take care and remember safety first.

Cheers & enjoy !
