From "Ultra Lounge: Wild, Cool & Swingin', Too" CD
- 1 jigger Whiskey
- Juice of 1/2 Lime

Use two metal mugs. Pour whiskey into one, boiling water into other. Ignite whiskey and while blazing...mix the two by pouring from one mug to the other five or six times. Sweeten with sugar. Serve with twist of lemon peel.
From Jerry Thomas's "Bartender's Guide"
- 1 small tea-spoonful of powdered white sugar dissolved in 1 wine-glass of boiling water.
- 1 wine-glass of Scotch whiskey.
Put the whiskey and the boiling water in one mug, ignite the liquid with fire, and while blazing mix both ingredients by pouring them four or five times from one mug to the other. If well done this will have the appearance of a continued stream of liquid fire. Serve in a small bar-glass with a piece of twisted lemon peel.
The novice in mixing this beverage should be careful not to scald himself. To become proficient in throwing the liquid from one mug to the other, it will be necessary to practise for some time with cold water.
