Cocktail Recipe - Cola Stingray

When I was a kid, the coolest car I ever wanted was a purple Corvette Stingray.  This is what I thought the the Batmobile of the day should look like.

On New Year's Day, I was looking for a suitable cocktail to watch football games whilst staying awake after not getting enough sleep. That meant a recipe involving Coca Cola (sorry, Pepsi fans, only Coke goes with my booze).  Here is what I came up with:


  • 2 oz. Crown Royal (or suitable Whiskey)
  • 1 oz. Galliano
  • 4 oz. Coca Cola
Mix ingredients over ice, garnish with lime.  

The name comes from an older recipe for a Golden Stingray which is simply Bourbon and Galliano mixed over ice.

    2-4 fresh sage leaves, plus small sage sprig for garnishing
    .25 oz maple syrup

    Add sage leaves and syrup to base of cocktail shaker and muddle until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add bourbon, apple cider, and vinegar, then fill shaker with ice. Shake mixture until just combined and chilled, about 5 seconds. Double-strain cocktail into chilled old-fashioned glass half-filled with ice or containing single large ice cube. Garnish with sage sprig and serve.
