101 Best New Cocktails: Ready, Steady, Fire! by Ralf Hubbers, Demain, Nijmegen, Gelderland, Netherlands
Ready, Steady, Fire!
Ralf Hubbers, Demain, Nijmegen, Gelderland, Netherlands
“Created for the not so honourable Dutch pirates, shooting their way through everyone and anyone, just to loot, drink and conquer the world. This drink is the aftermath, smoke rises and the ones still standing raise their glass or tankard to honour their fallen brothers.” Ralf Hubbers
40 ml (1.35 oz) Bols Genever
10 ml (.33 oz) Ilegal Mezcal Reposado
10 ml (.33 oz) yellow Chartreuse
30 ml (1 oz) fresh lime juice
20 ml (.66 oz) runny honey
2 to 3 mint sprigs, as garnish
1 to 2 grinds black pepper, as garnish
Crack the cardamom in the base of the shaker. Add ice and the remaining ingredients. Shake and fine-strain into an old-fashioned glass. Add ice and the garnishes.
gaz sez: This drink celebrates the Dutch pirates who fought my ancestors during the spice wars, and it’s hard to forgive their swashbuckling treachery even though a few hundred years have passed. Nevertheless, a damned good drink is a damned good drink no matter how you cut it, and Ready, Steady, Fire! is, for sure, a damned good drink. Nicely done, Ralf!
