The Blue Blazer

What do you get when you combine Jerry Thomas, Fire, and showmanship?
2 oz Scotch
2 oz Water (Boiling)
1 t Sugar
1 twst Lemon peel (as garnish)
Instructions
Obtain two large metal mugs. In one, add Scotch and boiling water. Ignite the Scotch. Toss the hot mixture back and forth between the mugs a few times - it should look like you're pouring a liquid stream of fire. Extinguish the flames, add the sugar, stir to dissolve, pour into a tumbler. Add garnish.
Notes
Professor Thomas says to practice with cold water first lest you scald yourself.
