Four Horsemen Shot Recipe – The Perfect Making Of 4 Horesemen Shot

Four Horsemen Shot

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.

Ok, let’s get to the recipe first.

Well, this is a very simple cocktail with not much technically going into this. However, one kind advice from our side is that Please DO NOT mix water.

You can add ice cubes, stir the mix and immediately strain into the shot glass.

The standard protocol is to use the four “J’s”. But you can substitute any high quality brands if one of the other is not available.

For instance, when you add Captain Morgan (Rum), it becomes “Four Horsemen go to Sea”.
