Kentucky Molotov

Recipe
50ml Woodford Reserve
7ml creme de cerise
2 dash Angostura
5ml Absinthe

Method
Prepare a shaved circular orange twist and place a small amount of brown sugar on top. Stir ingredients over ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Soak the sugar with absinthe and set alight. Float flaming twist on surface of the drink

Created for a competition in 2002 this drink relies on the delivery of the final ingredient on the garnish. The twist will flame until the sugar has melted, it will then be dense enough to sink, gently delivering a sheen on absinthe to the drink’s surface
