Flaming Homer


Highball Glass

Glass Guide- Highball Glass

I cannot say that I've ever had this drink, nor do I want to try it. However many people are curious about it after its appearance on The Simpsons. The key is to use a plain children's cough syrup, nothing too flavorful. Be careful when making any flaming drink and extinguish before drinking. I'd be curious to hear comments about it.
