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.
