Place a short rock (wide mouthed spirit glass) on bar. Pour the blue curacao, white sambuca and chatreuse into a brandy balloon (snifter). Place the brandy balloon horizontally, balancing on the mouth of the short rock. -- Ignite the alcohol in the brandy balloon. Rotate the brandy balloon (like a cement mixer). Pour mixture from brandy balloon to short rock while it is alight. The stream of alcohol falling between the glasses should form a waterfall of fire cascading into the short rock. (I am a poet also) Use the upside down brandy balloon to suffocate the drink in the short rock. Be sure the flames are out. -- Remove the brandy balloon and inhale the fumes. Shoot the drink. -- Hold on to the bar very tightly!
You can substitute just about anything for the blue curacao and white sambucca, as long as they flame. A mixture of blue and red Galliano Sambucca makes a particularly good looking drink. Try adjusting the colour to suit your customer. Ask customer "what's your favourite colour?", and make it that colour. Great for birthdays and similar celebrations. If you're soft, you could probably do it without the chatreuse.
