PREPARATION_TECHNIQUES

Why is the My 4 Boys cocktail shaken and not stirred?

The My 4 Boys cocktail is shaken and not stirred to ensure that the components - whiskey, cognac, and bourbon - are well mixed.

The My 4 Boys cocktail is best served in a shot glass, chilled. To properly serve it, you should shake the ingredients with ice before straining the mixture into the glass. Serving it cold enhances the flavors of the whiskey, cognac, and bourbon, making it an invigorating and potent shot.
