*Note*- The ignition of the alcohol is a necessary step in order to burn off alcohol and add that much desired flavor we all love. So please TAKE CAUTION when adding the alcohol, while the ignition of the alcohol isn’t strong it still requires basic safety precautions. Make sure to add the rum while skillet if off the heat and stand back while your hand grips the edge of the skillets handle during shaking.
