Brave Bull Cocktail

Brave Bull Cocktail – Trader Vic’s 1972 Kahlua Cocktail

This an awesome cocktail and my favorite Kahlua cocktail. So if you’re not a coffee liqueur fan this one is still defiantly worth a shot. If you already like Black or White Russians then this one may become your new favorite. The origin of the name brave bull is not really know. There was a 1950s movie called The Brave Bulls and maybe it was named after that, but there is no evidence to suggest so. I found the whole movie for free on youtube but I have no interest in watching it. So if you’re so inclined to find out if they mention the drink during the movie be my guest and send me an email. I’m sure this cocktail is older than this but the oldest reference I can find of it is in Trader Vic’s 1972 revised bartending guide.

Notes

Tequila Manhattan Cocktail

Tequila Manhattan – A Fantastic Variation of the Manhattan

A modern variation of the classic Manhattan this one substitutes bourbon for anejo tequila. This is a really tasty cocktail and if you’re a tequila fan this is defiantly worth a try. Be sure to use anejo(old) tequila. Reposado is ok but not great and silver or gold tequila is not good at all in this cocktail. It can only be anejo.
