DIRECTIONS

  • Warm a mug. (You can do this by filling a mug with boiling water, letting it sit for a a minute, and pouring it out. Or just fill a mug with water and nuke it for about 30 seconds and then pour it out.).
  • Place into the mug a teaspoon of brown sugar and the cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, and coconut syrup. Add about a tablespoon of boiling water and swish it about a bit to dissolve the sugar.
  • Add the rum and Crème de Cacao, then fill the remainder of the mug with boiling water. Stir.
  • Get your kitchen lighter ready. Find yourself a large spoon – at least as large as a tablespoon but it can be a serving spoon, too. Place a generous pinch of brown sugar in the bowl of the spoon, then add 151 rum until it’s just about full.
  • Hold the filled spoon over boiling water in the mug to allow the rum to get warm (but don’t actually let it touch the water).
  • Carefully light the rum in the spoon on fire and then oh-so-carefully tip the spoon into the mug’s contents.
  • As Pat Murphy says, “The mixture in the mug will burn with a lovely blue flame.”.
  • Carefully – away from any innocent (or not so innocent, mind you) bystanders – blow out the flames and enjoy your Flaming Rum Monkey. Yum!
