Out, out, brief candle! A Russian dude got burnt after allowing a barman to pour a shot on absinthe (which was aflame) into his gob:
"Alexey Ponamarev, 28, had to be rushed to hospital with burns to his face after the incident in a bar in Novosibirsk, south-west Siberia, which was caught on camera by his girlfriend.
Doctors treated him for first- and second-degree burns and Mr Ponamarev is now reportedly preparing to sue the bar for half-a-million roubles (£10,300)"
Accidents will happen I suppose...especially when pouring burning high proof alcohol into a patron's mouth while his head is prostrate facing the Heavens. I blame health and safety....could be a good story line for Ben Elton's hilarious new comedy.

According to some reports Ponamarev asked Bykov (the bartender) to use absinthe. Bykov claims he usually only uses Sambucca!!! In a typical Ruskie deadpan sort of way Bykov says: "the guest insisted that I try the absinthe version and the guest is always right – but unfortunately it had negative consequences for him"
Negative consequences! Getting one's face lit of fire!

A silly bar stunt but also very much part of the machismo of the new East.

That started in the 1990s out East, yes? I can see the attraction of caramel in absinthe...but if it is something that is new and modern...best not <anyone know where you can buy monocles?>

Another crazy way to "enjoy" your hooch:
"Diet-conscious drinkers who want to get drunk without consuming empty calories are turning to a dangerous method that involves pouring alcohol over dry ice so the vapors can be inhaled."
I've got a lovely bottle of shiraz that I'm going to inhale with a beef rendang.

Yes indeed! Nothing like inhaling a nice G&T at sundown!
