With an equal measure of each spirit, often Jack Daniel's whiskey for its smooth yet robust character and a tequila of choice for a sharp, agave kick, this drink is served in a straightforward manner, typically in a shot glass. The result is a cocktail with a fiery flavor profile and a strong presence, meant to be enjoyed quickly in a single gulp or sipped slowly to savor the contrasting taste of the two liquors. This mix is usually favored by those who appreciate a no-frills, direct approach to their spirits, and is a popular choice for a daring shot among friends.
