What happens when you take Bulleit Bourbon, a few inventive mixers like Frangelico, chocolate liqueur, and EVEN coffee, before serving it all with sixty-eight calories of pure rectangular chocolate goodness?
Well, that’s easy. You get one of the creamiest, most completely biscuity blends the world has ever seen. A.K.A our Bourbon Bad Boy.
And while a mix of bourbon and coffee might raise a few eyebrows, you have it on good authority (ahem, us), that this cocktail is boozy, delicious, and anything but innocent.
So to get a lil’ naughty at home, here’s how to make it for yourself.
Old Fashioned glass
Bulleit Bourbon hip flask (which you can borrow/steal from any Revolution bar)
Bourbon Bad Boy Ingredients
50ml Half and half
37.5ml Bulleit Bourbon
12.5ml Gomme syrup
6ml Chocolate liqueur
How to make a Bourbon Bad Boy
First things first, you’re going to want to take half a shot (or 12.5ml) of your Bulleit Bourbon and add it to that hip flask you’re borrowing from us.
Now, trust us on this next one, and brew a pot of your favourite coffee, then let it thoroughly cool down by looking at dog GIFs for 8 minutes. Then add 12.5ml of the stuff to your hip flask, before putting this mix to one side.
Next, grab your Boston tin and fill it with cubed ice. Then collect all of your remaining ingredients, and add them to the Boston tin. That’s the rest of your Bulleit Bourbon, the half and half, Frangelico, gomme syrup, and chocolate liqueur.
Now it’s time to channel Tom Cruise in 1988 blockbuster-flop Cocktail, and give this combo a fairly vigorous shake while trying to look as cool/tall as possible. When your arms start getting tired, get a hold of your Old Fashioned glass, strain in the contents of your Boston tin, and top with crushed ice.
Finally, get the party started by adding the boozy mix from your hip flask, and finish it off by dunking a bourbon biscuit into the naughtiest brew you’ve ever tasted.
There you go. We’ve basically just given you the recipe for a real good time, so just make sure you’ve got enough bourbon biscuits to go around.
