In honor of the opening of True Grit, the all-star remake of one of the all-time greatest films, Wild Turkey has put together this Old West cocktail with all the ingredients—the gold, the grit, the sarsaparilla and the whiskey—that shaped the now-mythic American West.
So catch a matinee, come home and make yourself up a “Rooster.” What better way to follow a new classic than with another?
