yakuza is missing his 43things friends... Hi everyone!
Back when I lived in New York
My friends and I went to the bartender at the Coliseum Bar
and told him that I needed a shot. This was after we’d been drinking for about 4 hours already. We said, “We need a shot that we can call the Flaming Monkey Claw. We’ve got three requirements for it:
- It’s got to be green
- It’s got to be nasty
- It’s got to be on fire”
So, it had some kinds of liquors (it truly was nasty) including Creme de Menthe (for the green) and topped with Bacardi 151 (for flamability). I grabbed the shot and did it. I didn’t blow out the flame, and I didn’t get all the 151 into my mouth. There was a trickle of it that went down my chin and was still on fire.
I didn’t get burned badly, but we did have a great laugh, and there was a little bit of redness.
In my mind, it’s well worth the story.
