3 Cocktails That Will Put Hair on Your Chest

3 Cocktails That Will Put Hair on Your Chest

What’s a cocktail?

By its very definition, it’s a mixed alcoholic drink that has at least two ingredients. One of these ingredients has to be a spirit.  So essentially, it’s a spirit-based drink that has been created to taste like heaven in your mouth. But some cocktails aren’t concocted to be a pleasant mix of alcohol and sweet, sugary goodness. Some cocktails have been designed to test your courage and to challenge your manliness, even if you are a lady. The following three drinks will put hair on your chest, regardless of gender. They are superior in every way possible to every other cocktail you have ever tasted. They are the Chuck Norrises of the cocktail world.

The Zombie

Zombie Cocktail

By its very name, the Zombie inspires fear and respect in those who choose to partake of it. Legend has it that this delightfully strong drink was introduced by Don Beach in his Hollywood-based Don the Beachcomber restaurant in the late 1930s. It was first made as a cure for his hung over customers, albeit a really strong alcoholic cure. Because as everyone knows, the best way to cure a terrible hangover is with more alcohol. Needless to say, instead of curing hangovers, this cocktail does the exact opposite of that. Since the cocktail has a smooth and fruity taste that helps to disguise the extremely strong alcohol content, many people are actually fooled into thinking that the Zombie is an easy drink to handle.

Ingredients:

2 dashes Bacardi 151

1 oz White Rum

1 oz Golden Rum

1 oz Dark Rum

1 oz Apricot Brandy

1 oz Pineapple Juice

1 oz Orange Juice

0.25 oz Lime Juice

1 dash Grenadine

Recipe:

Put all of the ingredients except Bacardi 151 into a shaker half-filled with ice and shake it.

Pour the mixture into a tall glass and give it a splash of Bacardi 151.

Enjoy!

The Black Russian

 Black Russian

In Russia, the cocktail drinks you.

And in this case, that is quite true. The Black Russian will drink in your fear as you gaze upon its vodka-and-coffee-liqueur soul. Introduced in 1949 by Gustave Tops, a Belgian barman working in Hotel Metropole in Brussels, the Black Russian was created in honor of Perle Mest who was the U.S. ambassador to Luxembourg at that time. This cocktail is all about vodka, and why not? It’s a Russian-inspired drink. With vodka being the main reason as to why this cocktail is so strong, all of the other ingredients are merely there to complement the vodka. In fact, you could substitute the coffee liqueur for any other spirit of your choice. Whiskey? Do it. More vodka? Technically, it would no longer be a Black Russian, but with a drink this strong, no one will dare tell you otherwise.

Ingredients:

2 oz Vodka

1 oz Kahlua

Recipe:

Pour ingredients in a glass filled with ice cubes.

Stir.

Enjoy!

Long Island Iced Tea

 Long Island Iced Tea

The Long Island Iced Tea is a cocktail that almost everyone is familiar with. However, what may surprise people is that it is actually one of the strongest cocktails out there. Often dismissed as a “girly” drink because of its deceptively sweet taste, the Long Island Iced Tea has been known to topple even the mightiest of drinkers. Legend has it that the Long Island Iced Tea was initially made with whiskey and five other liquors back in the days of Prohibition in the 1920s. Today’s version of the Long Island Iced Tea is similarly potent, so for anyone telling you that you are weak for getting a lady’s drink, you can tell them to eat your shorts. Except you shouldn’t  Shorts are hard to digest and that person might have gastrointestinal complications later. Plus, you would be pants-less.

Ingredients:

1/2 oz triple sec

1/2 oz light rum

1/2 oz gin

1/2 oz vodka

1/2 oz tequila

1 oz sour mix

Coke

Lemon wedge for garnish

Recipe:

Pour the spirits and sour mix into a highball or similar glass with the ice.

Stir well or shake.

Pour a bit of Coke on top.

Garnish with the lemon wedge.

Enjoy!
