Posted: Updated:

Setting cocktails on fire is the quintessential party or bar trick. Though the fire does enrich the flavor of the alcohol, burning off some of the liquid and allowing the nuances to shine through, we're going to be honest: the main reason people do it is because it looks awesome.

But one thing that does NOT look awesome is setting yourself on fire, so you should properly educate yourself before you try this at home, kids. Or you could just visit a bar where they'll do it for you, we won't judge.
