Ten-Gallon Cocktail

Break out your big hats, 'cause we're off to the rodeo with the Ten-Gallon Cocktail. This is one among many cow and cowboy cocktails that involve coffee liqueur. But I'm not convinced that the Ten-Gallon is a dessert drink just because there's egg white.

If you have your own infusion of coffee and spirits, this is the time to use it. Kahlua is too sweet and you need bold coffee flavor here.

MurLarkey coffee whiskey is a cold brew of coffee and white whiskey. There's no added sugar so you can control for that. Use MurLarkey coffee whiskey with at most a half teaspoon of sugar. The sweet vermouth takes care of the rest. And again, Imagination gin is here because too much juniper would make this drink British. It's not. So drink American gin.
  • 2 oz. gin (Imagination gin used)
  • 1 oz. coffee liqueur (MurLarkey coffee whiskey used)
  • 1 oz. sweet vermouth (Cocchi de Torino used)
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/2 tsp. sugar optional
Combine all ingredients in a blender with ice. (Alternatively try shaking with crushed ice.) Blend and pour into a chilled Old Fashioned glass.
