In real estate the mantra is location, location, location but in mixing cocktails its technique, technique, technique. Most home bartenders tend to just throw the ingredients together and serve the drink and in a lot of commercial establishments they do the same thing.

Pour some liquor into the prewarmed glass and heat a smaller amount over a flame or in a saucepan on a stove. Light it with a match and then pour it into the glass being used very carefully.
