Flaming Party Punch

Since everyone knows that it’s not really a party until something is on fire, and because you only have about 8 more weeks to have hot drinks as the signature cocktail of a party, I figured I would share my recipe for Flaming Party Punch… well all of those reasons, and because a friend who used it recently sent me this exceedingly cool picture

1 pint of rye whiskey

1 pint of spiced rum

3 oranges whole with cloves poked liberally into the skin

1 pint of orange juice

4 ounces of freshly squeezed lemon juice

1 pint of apple cider

Mix the rum and rye in a punch bowl

Add the oranges and light it on fire

Let it burn for about 30 seconds, for the oils from the orange skin and the cloves to properly get to know the booze.

Add the juices – the flame will eventually blow itself out, in the mean time, just enjoy the awestruck look all of your guests have on their faces.

    that is incredibly awesome.

    I am not sure if it was my idea or that of my bartender – we were kinda pickled when we tried it the first time (NOT ADVISABLE when playing with fire) but I am taking credit here.

    Coolest. thing. ever. Quite the flair.

    It’s just a little over the top but sometimes showing off is alright.

    I tried this recipe last night with no success! The alcohols just wouldn’t light. Someone said I need a higher proof alcohol to start the flame. How can I fix this for the next time around?
