Cocktail Club : Black Rider

It’s Saturday and if you don’t know what that means by now then hand your head in shame! It’s another instalment of the Cocktail Club and this weeks didn't quite go to plan when I created and shot it. I found a recipe and had all the gubbins to make it…however the recipe was in Spanish…I speak good vacation Spanish - alcohol Spanish could do with some improvement. Basically, long story short, I had zero clue what the heck I was doing and ended up making a really strong drink (it burned to the soul. For real.) Don't feat, I have got all the correct measurements and adapted it slightly below for you to try out!

What you need…

Jack Daniel’s Old No.7

Grenadine Syrup

Triple Sec


Cocktail Shaker


A Glass

Jack Daniels Black Rider Cocktail | Sam Squire UK Male Fashion & Lifestyle Blogger

Step 1

Chuck your ice into your shaker and let it chill right down. After that, pour a shot of Jack Daniel’s over it - if you like a real strong drink add a little more, don't go too overboard though!

Step 2

Add in half a shot of grenadine syrup, you definitely don't want to use any more of this, it’s super sugary syrup, any more will make your drink utterly rank. 

Step 3

Add half a shot to a shot of Triple Sec, this gives it a nice orange taste, again, don't add too much just make sure it is balanced out with the JD. Pop the top on to the shaker and give it a bloody good shake!

Fill your glass with ice, pour over and top up with lemonade, you don't need much, it just adds a little fizz to the drink. Enjoy!!
