I’ve seen both Dale de Grof and Dave Wondrich make a Blue Blazer, and heard them talk about their shared inspiration, Professor Jerry Thomas. There are tales of the man standing behind the bar, with white rats running atwixt his shoulders, as he flung the blue flame from glass to glass in the most amazing manner.
I get the feeling that both Dave and Dale have set the floor alight trying to emulate this feat, and I’ve heard them put it down to poetic license, as had I after setting my hands alight.
Check out this video from the markets in Thailand though, It does appear the laws of physics can be suspended, or at least appear to be, while pouring from glass to glass.
Time to get practicing?
