This Flaming Sambuca is a fiery two ingredient shot recipe that is great for a party. All you need is Sambuca, a few coffee beans and a match.


  • 3 coffee beans
  • 1 ½ oz Sambuca


  1. Add the coffee beans and Sambuca to a shot glass.
  2. Using a match or a lighter, light the Sambuca on fire.
  3. Let the shot burn for a few seconds, then extinguish the flame by putting the bottom of another cocktail glass on top of the shot.
  4. Take the shot only once the flame has been entirely extinguished. Enjoy responsibly!


  • Safety: Do not drink the shot while it is still on fire. Do not spill any alcohol that is on fire as it can continue to burn and start a fire. Do not keep anything flammable around the flame. Do not use water to extinguish an alcohol fire; use baking soda or a fire extinguisher. Don’t let the shot burn for more than a few seconds, otherwise the glass can break.
