A History Lesson With Booze

Detonator

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.
