Speechless Sunday - Flaming Pumpkins!!

Flaming Pumpkings by Tarina Peterson 
Flaming Pumpkins in Flame
Flaming Pumpkin ready to be consumed

As many of you know our daughter is a flight attendant for a charter company.  She was recently on a troop flight to Alaska and had a 30 hour layover. With co-workers she took an excursion in their 5 hours of sunlight.  This series of pictures were taken in Whittier Alaska. I'm not sure what a flaming pumpkin is but the pictures of them are very interesting.  If you would like to see more pictures of Whittier and the Kenai peninsula visit her Flickr site.

Marchel, The drink intrigued me so I Googled it, here is the recipe.  Thanks for sharing.

Posted by Dan Tabit (Keller Williams Bellevue) about 10 years ago

I am not sure what they are, either, but I don't think I would drink one while it was lit.

Posted by Richard Mielke, REALTOR, Gettysburg Pennsylvania Real Estate (RE/MAX Results) about 10 years ago

NYSSA, They do look yummy and I love the way our daughter caught the flame.

DAN,  Thanks for the link.  Those look GREAT!  I think I will have everything here to make them when she gets here for Christmas.  We have been brrrrrrrr cold for us so that would be a nice warm drink. 

RICHARD, I think I would wait for the flame to go out.  It could get dicey otherwise.

Marchel - I've never heard of them either - but my guess is they are yummy! (careful with that mustache, buddy....LOL)

Marchel, never heard of it, but the recipe sounds strong, but yummy.  Just the flame is enough to warm you.

I knew Flaming Pumpkins had to have Kahlua in them.  We are so going to make these!  Thanks for the recipe, Dan.  Marchel, Thank your daughter for the great pictures!

Marchel,  I loved the pictures and am glad the recipe is posted.  They look absolutely wonderful!

Hi Marchel, There seems to be agreement among the readers that now with the recipe, everyone can make them. Before I looked at the recipe, I was sure there was going to be pumpkin flavor something or other along with nutmeg and cinnamon. 1 out 3. Shows what I know, LOL.

Posted by William Johnson, Retired Real Estate Professional (Retired) about 10 years ago

Those are interesting pictures, Marchel.  It appears that the flame has completely encircled the rest of the drink. 

Posted by Sharon & Bruce Walter, West Lafayette homes for sale (Keller Williams Realty Lafayette, IN) about 10 years ago

DEBI, I'm so going to try them.  Our daughter flies in on Saturday from NYC and I think I will have everything here to make them.  She is not a drinker but will drink shots (lol).  What is up with that.  Now she only drinks one shot, two max.

LORA, It looks like a wonderful winter recipe.

SHIRLEY, I'm glad Dan thought to Google the recipe.  With those ingredients it sounds yummy.

CAROLE, I loved the pictures also.  She had some great Alaska pictures but these were unique.

WILLIAM, I figured there would be pumpkin flavor also.  Maybe it all blends to give a pumpkin flavor.

SHARON, I thought the flame circling was interesting also.  I'm amazed our daughter was able to catch the picture.


Posted by Marchel Peterson, Spring TX Real Estate E-Pro (Results Realty) about 10 years ago

Marchel - those look like they would definitely taste like some more ... I love pumpkin ... I nice hot drink would be great right about now :-)


Posted by Kathleen Daniels, San Jose Homes for Sale-Probate & Trust Specialist (KD Realty - 408.972.1822) about 10 years ago

Marchel, that kind of lends a new meaning to a hot drink.  My mustache would not be very safe with that one :)

Marchel, I bet it smells good too.

Posted by Gary Woltal, Assoc. Broker Realtor SFR Dallas Ft. Worth (Keller Williams Realty) about 10 years ago

Hi Marchel.  I really enjoyed those snowy scenes of the Kenai Peninsula.  My nephew was stationed many years at Elmendorf AFB outside of Anchorage, so I have seen pictures of the Kenai Peninsula but only in the summer.  Very beautiful.  Was your daughter the dark haired one in the very back seat in the inside vehicle pic?


Posted by Bruce Walter (Keller Williams Realty Lafayette/West Lafayette, Indiana) about 10 years ago

Marchel sounds just right for a cold winter night to sip in front ofa nice fire in the fireplace.

Do you actually drink these?

KATHLEEN, We are having a cold winter for us so a warm drink sounds nice. 

GEORGE, That drink could get a little dangerous with a mustache.

GARY, I'll bet it does.  I intend to check it out.

BRUCE, That is our daughter although her hair is a light brown.  It does look dark compared to the two blonds.  She is also on the first page in the middle of the page.  I would love to see Alaska first hand in the summer but I will let our daughter check the winter out.

CARl & CEIL, It does sound like a good fireplace drink.  I don't know about you guys but we are having a cold winter so far (well for us).

Posted by Marchel Peterson, Spring TX Real Estate E-Pro (Results Realty) about 10 years ago

ANN, I found them on my daughters flickr site.  I think it is kind of like baked Alaska.  I don't know if you noticed the recipe up in the first comments. 

Posted by Marchel Peterson, Spring TX Real Estate E-Pro (Results Realty) about 10 years ago

Marchel - I meant to tell you that your avatar photo is beautiful! :)


Posted by Debi Boucher, "Realtor Showcase" - Real Estate Photography/Virtual Tours ( Real Estate Showcase Photography) about 10 years ago

It looks like it could be painful. HA. I've seen a few drinks lit on fire before, but have never tried any. I'm assuming this drink tastes a little like pumpkin. Interesting.

I've never heard of those before.  I like your picture Marchel!

Posted by Patricia Beck, Colorado Springs Realty (RE/MAX Properties, Inc., GRI, CDPE) about 10 years ago

Marchel, I keep meaning to tell you how nice your new profile picture is. Happy holidays to your family, Kate

Posted by Kate Kate about 10 years ago

I have never heard of those but boy they do look interesting.  Sounds good from the recipe.


Posted by Debbie Walsh, Hudson Valley NY Real Estate 845.283-3036 (Shahar Management) about 10 years ago

Marchel - many, many years ago in my drinking years we would drink a Greek recipe called a "Flaming Blue Jesus" that was very similar to these. And if you drink these burning drinks the person drinking them has to be very careful not to burn themselves, it is quite fun though (not burning) yourself though!

VB ;o)

Posted by Robert Vegas Bob Swetz, Las Vegas Henderson Homes for Sale (Realty ONE Group) about 10 years ago

Whew!!!  Glad to learn it's OK to blow the flame out prior to drinking!!!  Beautiful HOT pictures Marchel!

Posted by Diane Rice, SFR, SRES, CNC ( Rice Prprty Mgmnt & Rlty, LLC, South Holland, IL) about 10 years ago

Marchel - The recipe does sound delicious.  I am definitely going to have to try these out over the holidays.

Posted by Susan Brown (Keller Williams NE, Kingwood Texas (Humble & Atascocita too)) about 10 years ago

Now that is what's called great presentation!  Great pictures.

Posted by Irene Tron about 10 years ago

It looks like a drink, but I sure hope there's a disclaimer that comes with it, something like "Do not drink until flames go out." Otherwise one could have flames up one's nose. LOL

Happy Holidays!

Posted by Not a real person about 10 years ago

Marchel I love the photos.  I too did not know what a Flaming Pumpkin was.  After taking a look at the recipe I am sure many of your readers will give it a try.

Have a great weekend.

Hi Marchel, cute drinks.  I love the pictures.  I went to Kenai Fiords and went on a whale watching boat.  It was great, we saw lots of orcas.

LIZ, My husband has been helping a couple of buddies build homes in the Kenai so this year we get to go and take advantage of the house they have built.  I am the only one in my family that has not been to Alaska yet.
