The rooster cocktail was created by mixologists at Wild Turkey Bourbon for the most anticipated films to hit the big screen, True Grit, which casted an all-star team including Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, and Josh Brolin in 2012. Named after the lead character, Rooster Cogburn, the drink definitely has that old western movie saloon feel.
- 1 1/2 oz Whiskey
- 1/2 oz Cinnamon Schnapps
- 4 oz Sarsaparilla
- Garnish: Kosher Salt (for the rim)
Start off by rimming a double rocks glass with salt by using a lime wedge to wet the rim, then dip it in a shallow dish of kosher salt. Fill the glass with ice, then add the bourbon and cinnamon schnapps. Top with sarsaparilla and stir. Serve and enjoy!
