INGREDIENTS for the
OLYMPIC TORCH MARTINI
1 Oz. Bacardi® Torched Cherry
1 Oz. Bacardi® Spiced Rum
Edible Gold Flakes
1/4 oz Bacardi® 151 rum

DIRECTIONS
Shake a few of the edible gold flakes into your martini glass. Pour the Bacardi® Torched Cherry and the Bacardi® Spiced Rum over the gold flakes.  Carefully layer the Bacardi® 151 rum on top by pouring it very carefully over the back of a spoon into the martini glass. Carefully* ignite the 151 rum (a barbecue lighter is a good tool here).

It is best to assemble the Olympic Torch Martini at the table or serving location instead of moving it once it's lit!

FLAMING DRINK PRECAUTIONS!*
  • Do NOT drink this while the cocktail is still on fire! Extinguish all flames before consumption!
  • Cap off all liquor bottles and move away from the area before lighting any cocktail on fire. Remove any other flammable items and watch out for your clothing and hair.
  • Do not use a delicate or crystal glass because they are more prone to shattering from the heat and flame. Use a cheaper and heavier glass instead.
  • Keep a fire extinguisher, glass of water or some other fire suppression method at hand.  Should the glass explode the flaming alcohol could run all over and start a very bad fire, remember, alcohol IS a fire accelerant!
  • Do NOT stick any part of your body in or near the drink until you are positive the flames are extinguished. If it's too light outside you may not see the flames clearly as alcohol flames burn blue.
  • Do not serve this to someone who has clearly had too much to drink. 
  • Do not do this in the presence of children.  Don't give them any more dangerous ideas!
