Whip up futuristic cocktails using dry ice and fireballs

This week on the io9 show, we explore the science of cocktails. Oh, who am I kidding? Basically, we get drunk and play with dry ice and fireballs — thanks to our special guest, 2012's bartender of the year, Russell Davis. He shows us how to make a Douglas Adams-inspired drink called "the big red button," and then we just basically light the entire studio on fire.

Also, we tell you all about our favorite drinks in science fiction — as well as giving you a quick backgrounder on the science of getting drunk. Want more? You can subscribe to every burning episode of the io9 show on YouTube.
