    You can "float" by pouring it slowly over the back of a bar spoon.

Cocktail History:

  • The name refers to the US B-52 Strato-fortress long-range bomber. This bomber was used in the Vietnam War for the release of incendiary bombs, which likely inspired today's flaming variant of the B-52 cocktail.

    The origin of the B-52 is uncertain. One school of thought is that the B-52 was created in the famous Alice's restaurant in Malibu, California. Another school of thought is that the B-52 was invented at the Keg Steakhouse in Calgary, Canada in 1977.
