Flaming Gin and Tomato Soup

I found this a while back and thought of my friend, Gene, who loves gin. I'm sure he'll like this:

Flaming Gin and Tomato Soup

Per 2 servings:

1 tablespoon butter
1 scant teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon minced onion
1 teaspoon minced green pepper
1 heaping tablespoon cooked, chopped bacon
1/4 cup gin
1 1/2 cups tomato juice
Sour cream, for garnish

Over medium high heat, heat the butter in a small saucepan until the foam subsides, add garlic, onion, green pepper, and bacon and cook about 2 minutes. Be careful not to let this burn. Add the gin and flame with a long match. Gin is extremely flammable so be really careful. This is the reason you can only make 2 servings at a time. When flames subside add tomato juice. Then start over 3 more times. Garnish the soup with a dollop of sour cream.
