Ingredients

  • 20ml Luxardo Maraschino Originale
  • 10ml Vodka
  • 10ml Gin
  • 10ml Coffee-flavoured Liqueur

La Famiglia Inspiration

I love the story of Dorian Grey. This drink is inspired by this novel. All the ingredients are to help you live forever. Vodka - water of life. Gin- juniper berries are a hunger suppressor and good for arthritis. Coffee-flavoured Liqueur - caffeine as we knows keeps you going Luxardo- cherries have been used through the ages by Vikings , Romans etc for healing wounded and in cleansing the body. Flaming caramel is that Oscar Wild smoked. When this burns it releases a sweet smell. Also it warms the glass, like Dorian Grey by drinking this u will have warm hands but cold heart.

Method

  • Chill all liquids expect coffee-flavoured liqueur by stirring in ice.
  • Strain into absinthe glass and add coffee-flavoured liqueur so that it sits on bottom of drink.
  • Place drink on wooden board and stay either side on board of cocktail with 99% proof caramel spray and set alight.
  • Leave briefing few seconds so u can smell caramel and glass is warm then blow out.
  • Then drink slowly in one go.
