Running short on ideas...

I'm having a party the night of the opening ceremonies for the Olympics, and since I have some left-over mandarin-infused everclear from an experimental "mandarincello" batch, I decided to make up an "Olympic Flame" flaming cocktail (more of a shot, really).
I've been kicking around some ideas for what's under that thin layer of everclear and none have really grabbed me (plus I'm generally ignorant about cocktails). I don't want anything too high-octane (or maybe I can have a "virgin" option as well). Yet, orange juice and grenadine seem somehow not enough (although the visual effect is a no-brainer).
Any opinions/ideas would be gratefully received.
