Prairie Fire

Patrick Spears/Supercall

This classic shooter is a simple two-ingredient eye-opener made with whiskey or moonshine and a vinegary hot sauce like Tabasco. Cocktail historians believe the Prairie Fire was invented in the American Midwest as a punishment for patrons that lost bar bets. But that doesn’t mean it can’t also be enjoyed as a spicy reward.
