It is named after the powerful Italian sports car and its composition reflects both its strength and elegance. The cocktail consists of equal parts of Bailey's Irish Cream, coffee liqueur, Sambuca, and orange liqueur, creating a creamy and flavorful mixture. The Bailey's adds a creamy and smooth texture, while the coffee liqueur lends a rich and roasted flavor. Sambuca brings a hint of anise and the orange liqueur adds a citrusy and sweet touch. The drink is layered in a glass and then set on fire, hence the name "flaming". It is a popular choice for celebrations and is often presented as a show-stopping party trick. The flavors of the individual ingredients blend together to create a decadent and bold taste, making this cocktail a true delight for the senses.

Cocktail Colin says:

4/5

The Flaming Lamborghini marries the creamy silkiness of Bailey's with the deep, roasted notes of coffee liqueur, resulting in a balanced concoction with a luxurious mouthfeel. The fiery essence of Sambuca and the tangy zest of Blue Curaçao add a dramatic flair and a delightful citrus twist, combining for a multi-layered drinking experience that's as thrilling as it is satisfying.
