The Cowboy Black Cocktail.

Nothing too fancy here; just a good strong drink to take the chill out of winter (and your New Year's Day hangover). Start with Black Label Johnnie Walker and add two short pulls of espresso. If made correctly, you’ll be able to ride all night.

Deliver Ingredients


  • 2 sugar cubes
  • 1 1/2 Ounce Johnnie Walker Black
  • 2 Ounces espresso
  • 2 dashes ground cinnamon
  • 2 dashes black walnut bitters


Start with the Johnnie Walker Black and add two short pulls of espresso. Stir in sugar cubes, black walnut bitters, and top the cup with fresh-brewed coffee and a sprinkle of cinnamon. 

Cocktail Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Cocktail Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
