The Flaming Lamborghini recommended by Claire Napier
I found this rather than inventing it at all, but here’s a “Flaming Lamborghini:” (Of course, you can modify your vehicle to your own personal tastes. Drive at own risk)
- 1 oz Kahlua
- 1 oz Sambuca
- 1 oz Blue Curaçao
- 1 oz Bailey’s Irish Cream
Pour the Sambuca and Kahlua into a cocktail glass and give the drinker a straw. Pour the Bailey’s and blue curaçao into two separate shot glasses on either side of the cocktail glass. Set the concoction ablaze in the cocktail glass and start to drink through the straw (this drink should be drank in one suck). Once the glass is almost empty, pour the Bailey’s and blue curaçao into the cocktail glass and keep drinking till it’s all gone!
I also recommend this recipe for a gasoline shot. Spit it into your engine and pull ahead on the Fury Road!
- 250 ml Water
Pour into cup or guzzle it directly from the hose.
