Dallas Drinks: The Jock

Dallas Drinks The Jock cocktail

Dallas Drinks is a co-creation with Dallas Decoder, honoring the characters of the television show Dallas--both the classic series and the newer TNT Dallas, which continues the Ewing family saga. See all of the Dallas Drinks here.

All of the Dallas Drinks for Ewing men related by blood contain bourbon, so of course, The Jock does too, balanced with the herbal sweetness of Benedictine and the bitter sweetness of sweet vermouth, representing Jock's ability to be both a nurturing father and a hard-ass. A float of Islay Scotch to finish the drink makes it smoky on the nose, a reminder of Jock's critical stature as the founder of Ewing Oil.

Dallas Drinks: The Jock

1 1/2 oz. bourbon
3/4 oz. Benedictine liqueur
1/2 oz. sweet vermouth
2 dashes Angostura bitters
1/4 oz. Islay Scotch
Lemon peel

Combine bourbon, Benedictine, sweet vermouth and bitters in a cocktail mixing glass. Add ice and stir until chilled and diluted. Strain into a rocks glass with a single large ice cube. Float the Islay Scotch on top. Squeeze the lemon peel over the drink and then drop it in.
