The three wise men – Johnnie Walker, Jack Daniels, and Jim Beam all contribute to making the perfect shot— one of those that give that terrific kick. A hint of scotch, a touch of Bourbon, and a dash of Tennessee— what more can you ask for? There are multiple ways to mix the cocktail. The popular variants include Three Wise Men Go Hunting, Three Wise Men Visit Mexico, Trini Wise Men, Southern Wise Men, Christmas Wise Men, Three Wise Men and a Baby, and Three Wise Men Hit Manhattan. Although the Christmas Wise Men consisting of peppermint schnapps is a holiday variant, Three Wise Men Go Hunting is a traditional recipe consisting of a portion of Wild Turkey (bourbon). Three Wise Men and a Baby tastes fairly different, featuring milk as the key constituent, an equal portion of Absinthe with whiskey, makes it Three Wise Men on Acid and Three Wise Men Hit Manhattan is reminiscent of a classic Manhattan cocktail with a twist. The shot is a tribute to the three iconic whiskies, without which the world of alcohol would appear rather different. All three are named after the men who played a fundamental role in making these whiskies big. It is recommended to stick to just one of these shots at a time, as the alcohol content is reasonably high - 30% ABV (60 proof).
