The Blue Blazer is one of the few cocktails that is actually meant to be set on fire. When done correctly, the flames from the drink should be about two feet high.
History of the drink
The Blue Blazer is a traditional cocktail that has been around since the early 1800s. One of the first American bartenders, Jerry Thomas, is credited with creating it. It is considered to be one of Thomas' hallmark drinks. The Blue Blazer is a mixture of Scotch whiskey and boiling water that is passed back and forth between two glasses while being lit on fire.
