Brave Bull – Trader Vic’s Amazing Coffee Tequila Cocktail

Brave Bull Cocktail
Brave Bull Cocktail

This is a fantastic 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, this one may become your new favorite. The origin of the name brave bull is not known. 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 film 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.

Tequila Manhattan – Make This Fantastic Variation Of The Manhattan

Tequila Manhattan Cocktail
Tequila Manhattan Cocktail

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