Layer the tequila over sambuca. Add tabasco sauce.

You should pour the tabasco on top of the sambuca and then pour the tequila slowly on top, thus creating the "flat-line".

The recipe shuld be:
1/2 shot sambuca
1/2 shot tequila
4-6 drops of Tabasco
If you pour in the tequila last, you risk mixing the tabasco/tequila. Sequence: Sambuca, then (using teaspoon for exact control) tequila, den the drops of tabasco in a circle. The tabaso then falls through the tequila, and makes an even layer on top of the sambuca.
This is a speciality at the collegebar where I work, always fun watching the "virgins" =D

Love this shit. First time I had it, barchick (hot Czech girl) dropped the Tabasco in slowly, in drops. Left about 6-8 tiny little red balls suspended about halfway down the glass. Bloody awesome.

This drink was served to those stupid enough, a race between 2 friends, 1/2 sambuca 1/2 tequila in 6 shot glasses (3 each) then 1 drop of tabasco in the first, 2 drops in the second etc.

After a few of these, the tabasco won't be the only thing flatlining.

Put the tabasko on top of the sambuka with a spoon, on top of that the tequila as well with a spoon

In certain small Finnish university circles this shot is known as the Hydrogen Bomb. However, in a Hydrogen Bomb the Tabasco should not be made into a flat line but a "mushroom cloud". Hence, Hydrogen Bomb.
