This bold and powerful cocktail is a formidable combination of not one, but two shots of whiskey and a generous pour of overproof rum. With a flavor profile that is both smooth and intense, it's no wonder this drink is named after the iconic tough guy. The whiskey brings a rich and smoky depth while the overproof rum adds a kick of heat and a hint of sweetness. Best sipped slowly to appreciate the intricate balance of flavors, Billy Badass is the perfect drink for those looking to channel their inner badass. Just be sure to proceed with caution – this cocktail is not for the weak-willed.
