What is a Flaming BJ Shot?

A Flaming BJ Shot is a type of cocktail that dates back to the 1980s. It is made with Grenadine, Gin or Rum, Blue Curacao or Midori Melon Liqueur, and Tequila.

The ingredients are poured into a large punch bowl and lit on fire for a dramatic presentation.

Both drinks are low in alcohol but have an impressive visual effect when served.
