Flaming shots have always kinda freaked me out. What percentage of bartenders do you think are really trained in how to do that stuff? I know a lot of idiot bartenders. I’m not sure why we assume that since they’re behind a bar, they all of a sudden know what they’re doing.

I would trust Jon Taffer, and Jon Taffer only, to make me a flaming shot. Maybe one of his mixologist experts, but even that would be a stretch.

I certainly wouldn’t let some random broad from Lithuania start basically making a Molotov cocktail inches from my face. I also loved her reaction once shit goes down. She just grabs a stack of napkins and throws them at him –

Sorry, honey, no amount of napkins thrown into the air are gonna put this fire out. Nice try though, appreciate your concern, as my face slowly melts off my face.
