I have a regular who comes up for business from Columbus, OH at least once a month. He always has some interesting stories to tell. One that peaked my interest was of a shooter that him and a bunch of his friends were trying while vacationing in Colorado during a skiing excursion. They were staying at a ski resort and a bartender offered a flaming shot called the Moose River Hummer. I felt it was an interesting enough drink to share with you today.
When doing these types of drinks, it’s important to blow out the flames prior to drinking. In most states, it’s illegal for bartenders to now serve flaming shots due to the liability issues that tend to arise when people are drinking them. Please, do your part and be responsible and extra careful while drinking these, so you don’t catch your hair on fire or give yourself burns.

1/2 oz. Galliano
1/2 oz. Peppermint Schnapps
1/2 oz. 151 Rum
Method: Begin to pour in the order of above, the liquor into a 2 oz. shot glass. Take a match and light the drink. Blow out and drink.
