Pepe's Flame of Love Martini Instructions

If you're looking for a cocktail that is sure to impress your guests, look no further than Pepe's Flame of Love Martini. This stunning drink not only tastes amazing, but it also provides a show-stopping visual element that is sure to wow anyone lucky enough to witness it.

The Flame of Love Martini is a classic cocktail that combines the flavors of vodka, orange liqueur, and a hint of lemon. The true magic of this drink, however, lies in its presentation. To create the captivating "flame" effect, you'll need to use an orange peel, a match, and a steady hand. Don't worry, though – it's easier than it looks!

To prepare Pepe's Flame of Love Martini, you'll first need to gather your ingredients and tools. Once you have everything ready, start by chilling a martini glass in the freezer for a few minutes. This will ensure that your drink stays nice and cold.

Next, fill a mixing glass with ice and add your desired amount of vodka. For a standard Flame of Love Martini, a 2 oz serving should do the trick. Follow this up with 1 oz of orange liqueur and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice. Give the mixture a good stir to combine the flavors.

Once your cocktail is well-mixed, it's time to bring on the flame. Take your chilled martini glass and hold it at an angle towards your flame source (a match or lighter will work). Hold the orange peel between your thumb and forefinger, making sure the peel is facing towards the flame. Gently squeeze the peel to release the orange oils, which will ignite when they come into contact with the flame.

As the orange oils ignite, carefully rotate the glass to ensure that the flame coats the entire interior. This will create a stunning visual effect that is sure to impress. After a few seconds, gently blow out the flame and discard the orange peel.

With your martini glass now coated in a beautiful layer of flame, carefully pour your cocktail into the glass. Be sure to pour slowly and gently to avoid extinguishing the flame.

And there you have it – Pepe's Flame of Love Martini is ready to be enjoyed! Sip on this delicious cocktail and marvel at the captivating visual display. With its vibrant flavors and eye-catching presentation, this drink is guaranteed to be a hit at your next gathering.

Best served in a Beer Mug.
