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.
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.
- 2 ounces bourbon
- 1 ounce sloe gin
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.
