Cocktail Category:
Recommended Glass: Brandy Snifter

Ingredients List

• 1 oz Sambuca
• 1 oz Tequila
• 2 – 3 dashes Hot Pepper Sauce

Recommended Glass

Brandy Snifter

Instructions

The Canadian Snake Bite oriGinated in Montreal at the beGinning of a bachelor party which finished in New York City. It was introduced to a couple of bartenders in NYC and it became popular like a Flaming Mo from the Simpsons. Pour the Sambuca into a Brandy snifter and the Tequila separately into a rocks or Old Fashioned Glass. Add a couple dashes of Hot Pepper Sauce to the glass with Tequila. Roll the Sambuca around the snifter (like a cement Mixer), ignite, and allow to burn for a second or two. Pour the Sambuca into the Tequila rocks glass and cap it with the Brandy snifter so as to extinguish the flames. This should form some smoke within the glasses. Carefully lift the snifter and inhale the fumes, then pound the Tequila and Sambuca Mixture. Packs a pretty good wallop.
