1. Loaded Pistol
This unique cocktail utilizes Liquore Strega, an Italian liqueur you might not have at home. Once you’ve tried this herby tequila cocktail, you won’t be able to get enough. The garnish might make you think twice, though.
2. Smoking Gun Martini
What would a gun-themed cocktail list be without a James Bond-inspired martini? This isn’t your typical “shaken not stirred” Vesper martini, though. It’s got a bit of a twist that will entice anyone with a sweet tooth.
3. Twin Glock 40s
Not every cocktail on our list needs to be super sophisticated or complex, as the following drink shows. The Twin Glock 40s is about as popular as its namesake and only requires two ingredients. This drink is sure to get your guests talking (and drinking).
4. Golden Gun
Welcome to Smuggler’s Cove! This tasty cocktail dates back to a 2012 Tiki Oasis event where guests were asked to create their own rum-based cocktails. The Golden Gun was the winner, and we can see why after just one sip.
5. Petal Pistol
Who says guns – or gun-inspired cocktails – can’t be stunning? This tasty tequila cocktail is pretty in pink and full of flavor. It is easy to make and will surely impress your guests with its clever name and beautiful presentation.
6. Gun Metal Blue
While gunmetal isn’t technically blue, this cocktail captures the essence of the iconic color and distills it into a delicious tequila-based drink. Its distinctive flavor and hue make it stand out from other cocktails, and it's sure to be a hit with your guests.
7. Gun Barrel
No one wants to look down the barrel of a gun unless it’s in the form of this simple but delicious orange, currant, and cranberry cocktail. As the name suggests, this drink is meant to evoke the feeling of holding a gun barrel in your hand. It's strong and a little dangerous, just like any good cocktail should be.
8. Brandy French 75
This gun-themed cocktail has a bit of history behind it. In addition to being featured in Casablanca, the French 75 is named for a World War I artillery cannon known as the Canon de 75 Modele 1897. Most versions of this cocktail are made with gin and topped with champagne or prosecco, but this variant features brandy and hard cider.
Whether you’re a seasoned firearms enthusiast or just getting into shooting, we hope you enjoyed these gun-themed cocktails as much as we love making them. As always, drink responsibly and have fun!
