A History Lesson With Booze


This month back in 1958, Ripple Rock, an underwater mountain in Canada that caused hundreds of shipwrecks and deaths, is blown up in the largest non-nuke peacetime explosion ever. We asked Jay Jones, of the Pourhouse in Vancouver to create a drink that will blow our minds.

The Detonator, as mixed by Jay Jones at the Pourhouse in Vancouver, BC.

In a shaker add:

  • 1.5 oz. Knob Creek
  • a splash of Fernet
  • fresh lemon juice
  • dash of simple syrup

Add ice, shake and strain into a chilled champagne coupe. Top with champagne. Peacefully destroy any social obstacle which comes between you and happiness.
