Hi there,

What do "Flaming Hookers" and "raise general hell" mean in the following sentence?

"We drank Flaming Hookers and raised general hell in ports of call from Tokyo to Singapore and other Seventh Fleet playgrounds."

Thank you.
Tony

I'm guessing this is from a story about sailors in the Seventh Fleet. It sounded like "Flaming Hookers" was a drink, so I googled it, and it is https://www.barnonedrinks.com/drinks/f/flaming-hooker-5720.html (Looks like drambuie set on fire)

"Raising general hell" is like making trouble.
