AWOL

AWOL cocktail with melon liqueur and overproof rum

Mixologist Gaz Regan says that this shot must be downed in a single go to get the full effect. If you flame the drink, extinguish it before giving it to someone – and make sure that they touch the rim of the glass first, to ensure they don’t burn their mouths.

Ingredients

Instructions

Layer the drinks in a large shotglass by slowly pouring each ingredient over the back of a spoon, in the order given. Flame the rum for just a few seconds, then put it out.

Game Changer

This is a game changer. When you're at the liquor store, thinking, "Yeah, ok fine what does Ancho Reyes liquor get me?" you open the app, look up Chile liquor and see that it gets you like 11 new cocktails. This is addictive, and indeed worth the price. We're having a blast under quarantine. While some of the ingredients are kind of anonymous, the icons look like the Campari bottle, and the descriptions often tell you if Campari will work or if you need Aperol. If you <3 cocktails, get this.
