Thoughts, stories, ideas, recipes, cheers, and more... What else did you think you would get for a $1 tip?

For those of you looking for something on the more sophisticated side you have my apologies. This blog unfortunately mirrors the author (yours truly.) Some of the humor is not for everyone but I liked it and it's my blog so there! My patrons sometimes ask me where I come up with some of this stuff. I am glad to tell them my mind is a lot like Canada. It is sometimes a bit cold, there are a few dark corners, some of it down right confusing and even a bit dirty but there is also a lot of neat stuff up there. So I hope you all enjoy this blog! ... Cheers!

Flaming Banana

So as we have previously discussed in a previous lesson about Flaming Dr. Pepper Shots, fire + liquor = AWESOME! There is nothing that makes a bartender look like more of a rock star than lighting a drink on fire. We also know that guys in general aside from inventing fire (ladies just give us this one.) We love to play with fire as well. Case in point "just the tip? Please?" ... I know not the same but I digress.

The bottom line here is all of us no matter our age love a good flame. Ask any guy you know to build a fire and they get a look on their face that says "Oh hell yes! You want fire? You get fire!" Just be sure to specify the size of said fire or else what you could be left with will be the makings of a Hollywood feature. And why not? Fire is medicinal, it brings people together and the list goes on and on. I mean seriously when was the last time you made smores and got a little tipsy by the stove? Even better remember back to when you where a kid and you would steal your Grandmother's magnifying glass usually set aside for reading her prayer book in the morning. Your friends would hover over your shoulder to watch this misappropriation of glass and sunlight to create pure ant hell as those little suckers burst into flames! Well now your older and I'm betting dollars to doughnuts if you were to bring out the magnifying glass yet again your real friends would once again join in this cruel display.

*If anyone from PETA is reading this and wants to write me to complain... I don't give a flip! Seriously save your ink it will be only wasted on me.

Well here I am just a few years older and none the wiser giving you the Bananas Foster Martini a couple ways but still the same tasty FIRE. (I'm currently picturing Beavis and Butthead, "Fire! Fire!) The first one is my own recipe and the second is one I found that uses 99 Bananas. Why Bananas Foster because you get to light it on fire and it is darn tasty! Just be sure to have the fire extinguisher near by.
