The Blue Blazer was created in the 19th Century by one of the godfathers of bartending, Jerry Thomas, who wrote the first known mixology book "Jerry Thomas' Bartender's Guide".
This brushed, double-walled stainless steel 15oz mug has many uses, but is ideal for mixing a classic Blue Blazer. The outer wall will get warm, but not burning hot, and the handle stays manageable, making this great for chilled drinks as well.

- lemon peel Using two mugs, pour whiskey and boiling water in one, ignite the liquid, then pour back and forth between mugs to create a continuous stream of liquid fire. ...at your own risk!
