Sadly, there’s no Olympic event for serving up some serious cocktails.

But as you cheer on your favorite swimmers, gymnasts and other all-star athletes at the 2012 Summer Olympics, which kick off in London Friday with the highly anticipated opening ceremony, here’s a gold medal-worthy swill worth rooting for.

• 2 oz. sake
• 1 oz. coffee-flavored liqueur
• 1.5 oz. cream
• 1 oz. dark rum
• Cinnamon, to taste

Shake and strain sake and liqueur into a martini glass. Over bar spoon, pour cream to float on top. Over cream, float the rum. Light the rum with a match, and as the flame burns, sprinkle some cinnamon onto the flame. Clap hands over the flame to put the flame out. Stir and serve.
