And Now… Something Completely Different: Here’s The Flaming Sambuca Shot

REMEMBER SAMBUCA? It was very popular during the 70s, 80s, and 90s... and now it's making a big, well-deserved comeback.

This shot takes a quick, steady hand and is not for the faint of heart!

Prep time is only a few minutes and all you need is 1½ ounces of Sambuca and three coffee beans.

STEP 1: Place the coffee beans in the bottom of a shot glass.
STEP 2: Pour the Sambuca over the coffee beans.
STEP 3: Light the Sambuca on fire.
STEP 4: Quickly, while the flame is still low and blue, cover the top with your palm to extinguish it. Take your palm off, inhale, and take the shot. Cheers!
