  1. Heat a clean fireplace poker — an old, seasoned one is best — in the hot coals of a fire until glowing. Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass, then carefully lower the red-hot tip into the glass. If the poker is hot enough, the alcohol will spontaneously ignite. Don’t fret too much if ignition doesn’t occur — you’ll still get the caramel-like flavor. Hold the poker there until the boiling begins to subside, then remove the poker and serve immediately.
