Review:

If your coffee liqueur is on the sweet side, then add six drops of vanilla bitters to help the balance and complexity. However, with a good coffee liqueur and dry gin, this two-ingredient cocktail is surprisingly tasty and wonderfully simple.

History:

The Brave Cow emerged during the 1970s/80s on the back of the then popular Black Russian cocktail.

Recipe adapted from John J. Poister's, The New American Bartender's Guide.

BRAVE COW
1½ oz. gin

Lemon peel
Pour gin and coffee liqueur into a chilled Old Fashioned glass with several ice cubes. Twist lemon peel over drink and drop into glass and stir.
