The intense combination of Green Chartreuse, a French herbal liqueur known for its complex and herbal flavors, and Sambuca, an Italian anise-flavored liqueur, creates a potent and explosive flavor profile. The addition of a pinch of cinnamon adds a warming and spicy note, perfect for replicating the burning sensation of a backdraft. This cocktail is not for the faint of heart, but for those who enjoy a strong and flavorful drink with a hint of danger. So light it up and take a sip of Backdraft, but be prepared for a wild and turbulent ride.

Method

Serves 1 · Takes 3 minutes
Pour half a shot of green Chartreuse into a shot glass placed on a saucer and carefully layer half a shot of black sambuca on top
Pour a shot of green Chartreuse into a highball glass separately and ignite it
Pour the flaming alcohol over the shot sitting in the saucer below - igniting the shot
Throw cinnamon powder into the flames and then hold the empty highball glass above the flaming shot while upturned, in order to catch the vapour from burning shot
After burning for approximately 5-10 seconds, trap the vapour in the highball glass along with ice cubes and shake, whilst blowing out flames
Then consume the shot from the shot glass, inhale the captured vapours with a straw from the highball glass and suck the remaining liquid from the saucer
