Bourbon Black Hawk

The Bourbon Black Hawk pairs bourbon with sloe gin, and the result is a shockingly tasty blend between the two flavors. It’s sweet, but not too sweet; fiery, but still smooth.

Bourbon Black Hawk drink in tall glass

This drink is awesome for just kicking back, especially at the end of a long, hard day. The bourbon dominates more than you might expect, mellowing the sharp sweetness of the sloe gin. But the sloe gin tames the fire of the bourbon, too.


Fill a mixing glass halfway with ice cubes. Combine the two liquors, and stir. Strain the mixture into a cocktail glass. Optionally garnish with a cherry.
