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.
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.
