Here's how to make The Simpsons' Flaming Homer cocktail

Remember that iconic Simpsons episode where Homer invents his very own signature cocktail called the Flaming Homer before Moe steals it and calls it the Flaming Moe?

Well, if you were wondering what sort of boozy deliciousness caused such bad blood, wonder no more, because an evil genius has only gone and recreated the Flaming Homer.

Thanks to the folks over at the Cocktail Chemistry YouTube channel, we now know what the Flaming Homer would actually taste like in real life.

Hold on to your hats.

The video begins with Cocktail Chemistry using a frame-by-frame analysis to dissect which drinks Homer actually puts in the now legendary Flaming Homer.

While a number of bottles were unidentifiable, Cocktail Chemistry identifies bottles of tequila, peppermint schnapps, Crème de Menthe and cough syrup.

However, after sampling his creation, the mixologist says it tastes "god awful", adding that it has a "sweet minty flavour that gives you a gag reflex".

Reminding viewers that the real Flaming Homer only tastes good when it's set on fire, Cocktail Chemistry attempts to do the same, except its alcohol content is too low to go up in flames.

Following the shortcomings of the original Flaming Homer, the mixologist then goes on to make his own, substituting cough syrup for Creme de Violette, Cointreau, gin and lime juice – and manages to set fire to it.

Flaming Homers for everyone!
