  1. If you set it on fire, the sugar will melt and burn lips … but it would sure look pretty!

  2. Maybe you could lean a gummy work off the side of the glass? That way when the fire started we’d get a visual of what is happening to the benthic invertebrates being killed from the combination of corexit and crude oil? I may have to make a youtube video.

  3. I like the idea of the gummy animals on the side, this is definitely a new drinking project me thinks.

  4. hey im from new Orleans born and raised and i dont see any problem with it. normally people from our city can take a joke. but i find it funny and satirical on the situation and new Orleans being a city built on bourbon and good times i think it ties the two very well together. but the only thing that truly matters is how does it taste?

  5. I feel like this is more of a dessert than the actual stiff drink you’d need upon witnessing the Gulf…

  6. I think swapping an ounce of blueberry vodka (Pinnacle’s is the most flavorful I’ve had) for an ounce of the blueberry juice would add a little higher octane to this cocktail for those of us that like our drinks a little stiffer.

    Looks tasty!
