January 17, 2012 (Day 294) — Sophisticated Cowboy
Before anyone gets all elitist up here, there are such things as sophisticated cowboys. Growing up in the Midwest, there are those that are true, dyed-in-denim cowboys who still enjoy the finer things in life. This drink capitalizes on that dichotomy by combining bourbon — a drink often associated with the old west — with vodka, something much more metropolitan.
- 1.5 oz Sobieski Vodka
- 1.5 oz bourbon
- 2 dashes Angostura bitters
Combine the vodka, bourbon and bitters in a cocktail shaker and shake well. Strain into a cocktail glass.
