Pride And Joy -- If Stevie Ray Vaughan Made Cocktails

The late great Stevie Ray Vaughan gave us some tremendous music. At least I think he did.  A few years ago I discovered a cocktail named after him.  I read the recipe and thought it was oddly inappropriate.  It didn’t have an edge or the rawness that I associate with his music.

So what did I decide to do?  Remove any ingredient that wasn’t booze.  Here’s my Pride And Joy:

1.5 ounces bourbon
1.5 ounces  Southern Comfort
.5 ounces Cointreau

Combine with ice in shaker, stir as if the house is rockin', then strain into  a chilled cocktail glass.  Garnish with orange peel.

Random question  – if you make this cocktail in a very small quantity, is it a Cold Shot?
