Flame of Love Cocktail

There are a number of twists on the classic Martini cocktail. One of the more elegant and flamboyant of these is the Flame of Love. Invented in Los Angeles by Pepé Ruiz for one of his most frequent clients, Dean Martin, it is a variation worth celebrating.
*Remember, great cocktails start with measuring responsibly.*


2 parts Reyka Vodka

1/2 part fino sherry

3 large orange zests


Stir the vodka and sherry with ice until well chilled.

Prepare a chilled cocktail glass by expressing the oils of two orange zests over it.

Strain the cocktail into the prepared glass.

Flame the final orange zest over the glass and rop into the cocktail.

Serve immediately.
