For the remake release of “True Grit”, mixologists at Wild Turkey Bourbon created this cocktail. This can be seen by the name of the drink which has a vintage movie saloon feel named after Rooster Cogburn.
Sarsaparilla mix and cinnamon schnapps adds great taste to the whiskey. Root beer is an excellent substitute for sarsaparilla. The whiskey and schnapps can also be paired well with birch beer or cream soda.
If you add Goldschläger, you should pour some of that gold flake into your sudsy drink. There’s nothing easier than whipping up this easy cocktail recipe. It has all the charm, gold and grit found in the movie it was inspired by.
- Slowly pour the sarsaparilla into a cup. Likewise, it will foam up in the glass so stop early enough so that you can watch the head develop and then add more to get a nice head once it relaxes.
- It is very important that you use an equal amount of flavorful bourbon if you are planning to substitute another bourbon for Wild Turkey 101.
- With sarsaparilla on the go, it is easy to forget about a soft whiskey.
- When choosing a bourbon, choose a spirit that is above 80 proof for the best flavor.
