Our beloved Blackhawks are duking it out again in the Stanley Cup Final playoffs  against Tampa Bay’s Lightning.

 

We’re down one game (2-1) today, but Wednesday is game four in the best-of-seven series. I don’t know about you, but a nicely complex cocktail sounds like a lovely way to enhance my viewing experience.  And of course, it had to happen. Some smart mixologist came up with an idea for a cocktail named in honor of our guys.

The Hawk-tail

  • 1 ½ parts Hornitos® Black Barrel® Tequila
  • 1 part Campari® Liqueur
  • ¼ part Sweet Vermouth
  • 2 parts Seltzer
  • Dash of orange bitters

Preparation: Stir all ingredients in a mixing glass. Serve in an old fashioned glass. Garnish with an orange peel or slice. (All trademarks are the property of their respective owners.)

Now if only I could actually see where that darn hockey puck is going…
