Cold where you are? Yeah, it’s gonna be a long, cold winter. You’ll need a drink that’ll take the edge off the chill.
Hot toddies? Warm apple cider? Come on. Maybe if you’re by the fire with your girl. But if it’s just you and a couple of buddies out at the stadium for the playoffs, standing in the snow in a just-cleared parking lot with eight-foot snow banks, huddled over a BBQ flame? Something much stronger is needed. Something with a little heat you can feel right away. That’ll stick with you.
Try the Flaming Ring of Fire. It’s a shot that starts hot and stays hot. And there’s no mixers or fruit juice to water it down.
Flaming Ring of Fire
1/2 oz. Rum
1/2 oz. Whiskey
4-5 Drops Tabasco Sauce
Pour the rum and whiskey into a shot glass. Top with a few drops of Tabasco, and drink. Anyone yells “Fire in the hole!” before drinking, slap him.
