Flaming Bob Marley's - a shot with kick!

I did my first flaming Bob Marley shot at the Hedonism II bar in Negril around 2003.  Sucking on that straw and watching the colors & fire coming up was something I'll never forget, wait, I forgot about it by that next morning, hey...I had a few.  When at an all-inclusive resort where the drinks are "free" you might as well step out of your drink box and try a few new crazy drinks.  Hey, when in Rome...

How do you make one?

Round up the following:

  • Grenadine Syrup (the red)
  • Creme De Menthe (the green)
  • 151 Proof Rum (the yellow)

Quantities for one drink:

  • 1/3 oz Grenadine Syrup
  • 1/3 oz Creme de Menthe
  • 1/3 oz 151 Proof Rum

Blending Instructions:

  • Divide a tall shot glass into thirds, fill the lowest third with grenadine syrup, the middle third with creme de menthe, and float the 151 in the top third.
  • Wet a thin straw, light the 151 by passing a lighter over it, plunge the straw to the bottom of the glass into the grenadine syrup and suck that baby down.
  • Check to see if your face is on fire.  :-)
