Ready Aim Fire Cocktail


Where there’s smoke there’s fire. The heat in this Ready Aim Fire Cocktail comes from Bittermens Hellfire Habanero Shrub – an ingredient that has a permanent place in my bar. You should try some. It’s terrific in all sorts of tequila and mezcal cocktails. I received no compensation to make that statement.
