Halley's Comet

Drink Type: Cocktail



In a martini glass, layer equal parts of the curacao, Bailey's Irish Cream and room temperature vodka in that order. Dribble the Bailey's and the vodka over the back of a spoon so the layers don't mix. Then, using a long match and dim lighting, ignite the vodka. Pour this quickly into an old-fashioned glass containing ice and 1 oz. of half-and-half. It comes out a milky blue with an orangelike flavour. Exercise caution when working with flaming drinks. Practice pouring from the martini glass using an unflaming mixture so you can do it without spilling. And have a fire extinguisher handy. ALWAYS USE CAUTION WITH FIRE.
