Thirsty Thursday: The Longhorn

Traci Braxton is getting back on the horse this week…literally! In order to be the best brand ambassador she can be for Black Cowboy Whiskey, she is embracing her inner cowgirl. WE were so inspired by Traci,  we had to grab a bottle of Black Cowboy for #ThirstyThursday and give it a try! So, get a bottle for yourselves, and try out one of our new favorite whiskey drinks, The Longhorn.

8 Servings 


1 bottle of Black Cowboy Whiskey
2 Cups Mint Simple Syrup


2 cups Sugar
2 cups Water
2 cups Fresh Mint Leaves



  • Combine water, sugar, and chopped mint leaves in a small saucepan.
  • Bring to a boil over high heat until sugar is completely dissolved.
  • Allow syrup to cool approximately 1 hour.
  • Pour syrup through strainer to remove mint leaves.


  • Fill 8 cups or frozen goblets with crushed ice and pour 4 ounces of Black Cowboy Whiskey and 1/4 cup mint syrup into each (proportions can be adjusted to each person’s sweet tooth).
  • Top each cup with a mint sprig and a straw. For an impressive presentation, serve juleps on a silver platter!

Grab yourself a bottle of Black Cowboy, whip up a Longhorn cocktail, and sit back and enjoy an episode of #BFV!
