The Mage’s Fire can be blended on demand as a drink, but it’s designed to be mixed together in a vodka bottle and poured like a straight drink, served as shots.
It gets its name from the spooky light blue color it turns, and somebody who’s watched a few too many fantasy movies.
Let’s not beat around the bush. This is one of those shots that is basically designed to get you drunk. But it’s also designed to taste good doing it.
If you use a nice smooth vodka, it goes down pretty easily, and it tastes like cinnamon and orange.
For the cinnamon schnapps, it’s not absolutely required to use Goldshlagger even though the recipe calls for it. As you can see in the photos, we didn’t use it here.
Any cinnamon schnapps is fine, but Goldshlagger adds those little edible flakes of gold that make any drink seem magical. And that seems appropriate for this shot.
As mentioned above, this drink tastes like orange and cinnamon, which is a nice combination. Since you mix it in batches, it’s great for serving at get-togethers or playing drinking games.
- 2 parts vodka
- 1 part Goldschlager cinnamon schnapps
- 1 part blue curacao
- The best way to do this is to start with a half-full bottle of vodka.
- Add equal parts of the schnaps and curacao to it.
- Shake the bottle to mix the ingredients together.
- Chill overnight.
- Pour it as shots.
