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 classic cocktail that dates back to the early 1800s. It was created by Jerry Thomas, one of the first American bartenders, and is said to be one of Thomas' signature drinks. The Blue Blazer is a mix of Scotch whisky and boiling water, which is then set on fire and passed back and forth between two glasses.
