This Alcohol Is on Fire

911058690_69961686bf.jpgMy friend Todd Zuniga (the founding editor of Opium Magazine) suggests the following for my visit to Riga:

“The best bar in the city, by my count, was John Lemon’s — a divey sort of place where we had ‘hot shots.’ Half shot of vodka, half shot of absinthe, lit on fire and drank through a straw.”

I guess that this raised three questions in my mind:

1. John Lemon’s? Lemon — as in the citrus fruit?


2. Is it legal for me to drink that?

More importantly:

3. Will it hurt?
