Flame of Love

Today I am in a very romantic mood. In the morning I have already written a poem for a very special friend of mine living in Lower Mountain in Bavaria, nearby Major East Village. And here it is:

Da ist sie nun die SMS

die ich doch kaum nochmal vergess

an Eva die voll “passion” steckt

in mir vergessne Geister weckt

wie gern würd ich mal fahren hin

ich ihrem Herzen denn nah schon bin?

O.k., a poem for a special woman needs a special drink, doesn´t it? The Flame of Love is just good enough! Invented by Pepe Ruiz in mid-twentieth century in Hollywood. According to Dale DeGroff, Dean Martin enjoyed this drink, and Frank Sinatra was so blown away by it, that he ordered about two hundred drinks for the whole restaurant.


1/2 oz. Fino Sherry Tio Pepe, 3 Orange Peels for flaming, 2 oz. Vodka


Chill a cocktail glass.
