NO. Four Horsemen Shot is not for everyone. Absolutely not for the Weak-hearted nor those with Low Tolerance!
This drink, Four Horsemen Shot got its name from the Biblical reference, the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse who were meant to bring Doom to the Earth!
So, why such a hard name for this drink? Is it that strong?
Of course, ladies and gentlemen. This Shooter cocktail is as hard and strong as it can get. With the mix of four strong Whiskey liquors, and nothing else to dilute it, beware of this shooter!
But, if at all you get a chance to drink it, you will definitely enjoy it, especially if you are an adventure lover!
This drink mixes four of the types of Whiskies – Scotch, Irish, Bourbon and a Tennessee Whiskey with no other mixers.
When you try Johnnie Walker, Jameson, Jim Beam and Jack Daniel’s, it’s even better. Remember, all these whiskies start with “J”, so an apt name considering Four Horsemen.
