How to Make a Green Blazer

You have seen Jamie concoct Blue Blazer style drinks before. Here is a new twist that is perfect for the cold weather ahead, the Green Blazer.

2 oz Martin Miller’s Westbourne Strength Gin

1/4 oz ginger liqueur

1/4 oz cinnamon liqueur

1/4 oz blue curaçao

dash of Bitter Truth Aromatic Bitters

dash Bitter Truth Orange Bitters


Add boiling water to one of two large metal or ceramic mugs.

Add remaining ingredients to the second mug and ignite with fire.

Slowly begin rolling the alcoholic ingredients and the water back and forth from mug to mug.

As you roll the drink, position your mugs and farther and farther apart vertically to increase the length of the flame.

Cap each mug to extinguish fire.

Pour into pre-heated toddy glass.

Garnish with large lemon zest.

.. and that’s why everyone here missed your videos, Jamie
this one would be great with some St. Germain, wouldn’t it?

Until you get up to speed like Jamie here, it’s best to practice over a sink.  I’ve been lucky to not spill liquid fire all over the place, but I know a few who have.  :)

I’ve been wanting to make my own liqueurs lately too, as the selection of quality ones here in Ontario is lacking.  Any tips for making my own, especially fruit based ones like Apricot?  Jaime, I’ve read your posts on Beer liqueurs so I thought I could start with an Apricot beer liqueur,...

What spirit/which spirits do you use in the ginger and cinnamon liqueurs?

In the video, you use a cappuccino wand to steam the drink before setting it alight. Would using a cappuccino frother as you do with egg drinks have a similar effect because of the air, and therefore oxygen, indroduced, or does the heat/steam play a special role?

i know you’ve probably answered this many times, but i have to ask…. WHere did you get those cups and that great lighter? The drink looks awesome…

Damien I’m not sure if you’ll ever end up reading this post but a while back Robert Heston had a link for the cups.  He said to make sure you get double walled since they’ll be too hot to handle otherwise.
If you ever find the lighter please let me know.
