What Are Some Alcoholic Drinks That Start With the Letter “B”?

Alcoholic drinks that start with the letter “B” range from common ones, such as beer and brandy, to more complex cocktails, such as a black unicorn and a burning cherry. A great way to try out new cocktails is to pick out a few at a time that start with a specific letter.

There are too many alcoholic beverages that start with the letter “B” to mention, and more and more are being created each day. Below are a couple of classic cocktails that start with the letter “B” and a couple that many people have never heard of before.

Burning cherry

A burning cherry is made by combining a 1/4 ounce of bourbon and grenadine. Jack Daniels, Jim Beam or George Dickel can be used, or a combination of all three. Splash the grenadine into the mixture at the end, and give a quick stir before consuming the drink from a shot glass.

Black Russian

Combine 1 1/2 ounces of vodka with 3/4 ounce of coffee liquor for the classic black Russian.

Bloody Maria

The bloody Maria is a new twist on the classic bloody Mary. Combine one ounce of tequila with two ounces of tomato juice. Add a dash of lemon juice, celery salt and Tabasco sauce and garnish with a lemon slice.

Black unicorn

To make a black unicorn, combine one part butterscotch Schnapps with one part coffee liquor and one part Irish cream. The drink is traditionally made by layering the parts with the Irish cream on top.
