The Moose River Hummer is April 30th Drink of the Day!!

April 30, 2013 | By | 1 Comment

Here’s another flaming shooter for you.  However, unlike the Flaming Dr. Pepper Shooter, you do not have the convenience of the beer to snuff out the flame.  This one you have to blow out.  Be sure to make sure the flame is completely blown out.  This blue flame can be hard to see.  Also, be sure to wait a minute or so to drink from the shot glass before drinking this shot down.  My friend, Kenny, who does the shot on the video, felt the heat of the glass when doing this shot.

This is a very unique flavored drink.  The combination of Galliano and Peppermint Schnapps gives you a nice, rounded blend.  This drink was brought to me from an avid skier who discovered this while vacationing in Colorado.  This shooter will surely warm your soul after spending the day on the slopes.

I hope you enjoy!  Just be sure to not get burned.  Cheers!

    This, along with all other versions is a bastardization of the original secret recipe obtained from a troubadour gathered in his travels to Alaska. It was shared amongst a close knit group of revilers back in the early 90’s. The original can be found here:

    I am the original poster. This is the original drink. Anything else is just wrong. (and solely for pussies!)

    25 years. The legend lives on.
