Drinking with Bwog: Rasta Edition

Written by

God grant us the strength to resist such easy photo ops in the future.

After trips to Moscow and Mongolia, Drinking with Bwog has just returned a little “lazier” from Jamaica to bring you its new favorite shot—the flaming Bob Marley. The Columbia Bartending Agency’s resident Rastafarian Matt Kalish shows you how to make it!

With all this talk about Snoop and the Abacchalypse, I figured that it was time for a drink with a musical twist. Enter the flaming Bob Marley shot. This is one of those “we’d tell you not to try it at home but you’re going to anyway” kind of drinks. It tastes great, looks awesome, and kicks like a badass mutha.

Ingredients:

1 oz. Green Crème de Menthe

½ oz. Banana Liqueur

½ oz. Bacardi 151

1 oz. Grenadine

Directions:

Getting this to look right requires a gentle hand.  First, pour the grenadine into the bottom of a shot glass. Next, slowly layer the crème de menthe on top. Finally, float the banana liqueur and Bacardi 151 on top of first two layers. Perfect execution yields distinct red, green, and yellow layers.

Now for the fun part. Take a lit match and wave it over the top of the drink until the 151 ignites. To drink, wet the end of a straw, stick it down to the bottom of the glass, and drink until the flame enters the straw. Drink quickly, or the straw will melt!

As always, stay thirsty, and remember to stop, drop, and roll.
