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?
