Cooking with Fireball
Everyone has their own way of enjoying Fireball: It could be as part of a cocktail, as a shot or simply with a mixer. However, it seems as though people aren’t getting enough Fireball in their diet and have decided that the only way they can quench their craving for the Fiery goodness is to start putting it in their food. We obviously have no objection to this and will actively promote this genius use of our favourite tipple! This is why we have created the ultimate Fireball menu, consisting of options for breakfast, lunch and even a three course dinner.
Firstly, we would like to set straight a rumour that has bothered us for a while:
when cooking with spirits we had always assumed that the alcohol always burnt off. We are sure most of you feel the same was when we say “what’s the point then? We may as well use cinnamon sticks and drink our Fireball”. Well allow us to brighten up your whole day. Food cooked for around 30 minutes that contains alcohol will retain around 40% of its alcohol content. And flaming food will leave an even greater 75%. There’s probably some very clever science behind this, but there’s really no reason to take the time to understand it, we believe it.
And so let’s get started with breakfast: The most important meal of the day. No breakfast can be complete without a strong dose of coffee, and it’s even better with a steaming bowl of porridge. We found a great recipe for Honey and Whiskey porridge and we think by using Fireball the cinnamon flavour will really improve this dish.
Lunch: Normally the most boring meal of the day and often eaten in a rush. However here at Fireball UK we always make a big deal of lunch and all join in. So our suggestion will slow down your afternoon and allow you to appreciate your precious lunch break with a wonderful Moroccan lamb tagine. Simply replace the cinnamon in the recipe below for a couple of shots of Fireball.
Now your home and all you want to do is go to bed… not tonight! This evening will be a fully-fledged night of culinary genius. Every good dinner starts with an amuse bouche, if you haven’t been watching Raymond Blanc on the TV and forgot your 100 words of French “an amuse bouche are different from appetisers in that they are not ordered from a menu by patrons, but, when served, are done so according to the chef’s selection alone…” Well that’s what Wikipedia told us anyway. Now it didn’t take us long to think of a fantastic amuse bouche and we are sure you’ll agree on its appropriateness.
