The combination with Absinth 70% or 80% instead of Stroh Rum 80% is typical Czech and Slovak. As I love Baileys and it is quite unknown here in Eastern Europe this is my way of introducing it.
Fill in Kahlua, then slowly put Baileys on top. Take a tea-spoon reverse in the glass and slowly put the Absinth on top (in Slovakia typically 70% is green, 80% is red). Take a straw and cut it in the middle so that it is 50% inside and 50% outside of the glass.
DO NOT PUT THE STRAW IN THE GLASS.
TRANSPORT THE GLASS WITH CARE.
Set the Absinth on fire. Take your hair out of your face, remove your glasses! Take the straw in your mouth, and then head down and straw INTO THE STILL BURNING DRINK. Drink fast enough in one go - otherwise the straw is set on fire and you will just burn your lips or even your eyebrows!
Europe wide: 112 is emergency (fire and ambulance) on all mobile and fixd-line networks!

Don't try and pour the absinth and then go to the table. Bring another shot glass with you and pour it in at the table. Make sure they are ready b4 you light it on fire. You dont want it burning too long b4 they try and drink it.
