Cadillac Bar's American Flag cocktail: This is one flag you won't have any problems burning. While the cocktail's afire, push it toward a fellow patriot, hand him a straw, and let him suck it up -- fast -- from the bottom of the glass. First, you get the sweet rush of grenadine, followed by the orange flavor, then the vodka comes along to make sure you feel really good about the U.S. of A. As a bonus, the blue flames are sort of like fireworks.
Half-shot of Rose's grenadine syrup
Half-shot of DeKuyper Blue Curaçao liqueur
Half-shot of Smirnoff vodka
Dribble of Castillo 151 rum
Into a straight-sided shot glass, pour the grenadine syrup. Over the back of a teaspoon, float a layer of the Blue Curaçao. Then float a layer of the vodka over that. Add a few drops of Castillo 151-proof rum as an accelerant layer. Light the top of the drink with a match or cigarette lighter. Serves one.
