The Flaming Lemon

Drink Type: Cocktail


2 1/2 oz. Vodka (more Vodka drinks)
dash(es) Dry Vermouth (Extra dry would be best) (more Dry Vermouth drinks)
1 oz. Lemon Juice (more Lemon Juice drinks)
1 Ginger Root (peeled) (more Ginger Root drinks)


Peel and cut ginger root into a small piece (about one cubic centimeter in volume). Blend piece of ginger root with ingredients until pieces of ginger become unnoticeable, but do not make the ingredients hot with the blending. Shake mixture with ice and serve in a chilled cocktail glass. Rub the rim of the glass with raw ginger root and serve. The ginger root provides a very hot and "spicy" effect on the tongue, but tastes like lemon. The drink will burn the mouth and leave a citrus aftertaste. Use ginger root sparingly or as desired; it is very powerful.
