Blue Blazer Cocktail Recipe

There’s no doubt that the blue blazer is a cocktail that requires advanced bartending skills since it involves rolling flaming whiskey from one mug to another. A drink called “The Professor” was created in the 1800s by Jerry Thomas, whose etchings of him making it are some of the most famous images of “The Professor” that are surviving today. It might be difficult for you to try the blue blazer, but you can try flaming drinks like the English Christmas punch, flaming Dr. Pepper, and goblet of fire. Make sure you read through the safety tips before doing any of them, though.
