It is believed to have been first created in the 1950s in Mexico, where tequila is the national spirit. Its name is derived from the Spanish word "toro," meaning bull, representing the strong and fearless nature of both the drink and its ingredients. The coffee liqueur balances the boldness of the tequila, adding a smooth and slightly sweet depth to the cocktail. The tequila used is typically a high-quality blanco or reposado, imparting notes of agave, citrus, and spice. The Brave Bull is a perfect choice for those looking for a powerful and robust cocktail to sip on with a hint of sweetness.
