The Silver Bullet is a special drink because it combines both gin and scotch, and also doubles as a shooter, which isn’t typical for sophisticated cocktails. The other popular drink that combines both of these liquors is the Smoky Martini, but other than that, there simply aren’t that many drinks that try to combine the two.

It certainly is not considered a popular classic cocktail, but is a great option for those who love both gin and scotch, and feel like combining the two, or simply trying something new.

Ingredients:

  • 1 ¼ ounces of gin
  • ¾ ounce of scotch
  • Lemon twist (garnish)
  • Ice

Preparation:

  1. Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker over ice.
  2. Shake well.
  3. Strain into a cocktail glass.
  4. Squeeze the lemon twist over the rim, then rest it on the rim as a garnish.

Equipment:

  • Cocktail shaker
  • Cocktail glass, or shot glass

It’s a great option for those who want to both take shots and drink a cocktail, while keeping their drink consistent. The origin of the name is unknown, although it should be noted that Silver Bullet was a popular movie directed by Stephen King in 1985, that involved a werewolf. This could be because in mythology, a silver bullet is effective against specific monsters, such as witches, werewolves, and other creatures. The term has also become a phrase: a “silver bullet” is a simple and magical solution to a problem that one didn’t expect. It is therefore something that is extremely effective. For some, the drink could certainly prove to be a solution. Whether you feel like a shooter or a unique cocktail, enjoy a Silver Bullet today!
