Ever since Prometheus first stole fire from the gods, humans have been drawn to flames. Doubly so when alcohol is involved. We’ve all seen videos on YouTube where lighting Everclear shots goes from the most fun thing ever to an emergency room visit. Needless to say, lighting alcohol on fire is dangerous.

Which is why the first rule of lighting cocktails on fire is: DO NOT LIGHT COCKTAILS ON FIRE.
The second rule is: IF YOU MUST LIGHT A COCKTAIL ON FIRE, BE REALLY REALLY REALLY CAREFUL.
