Happy Hour: Midnight Cowboy

Today's happy hour recipe is named after 1969's Best Picture Winner, Midnight Cowboy. The film is rather dark, somewhat sentimental and sexy (it was actually rated X when it was released - back then X meant no one under 17). Much like the film, this drink is dark and yet beautiful. It consists of bourbon, rum and heavy cream, although I think a more authentic Midnight Cowboy drink would contain coconut milk instead. After all coconut milk is one of the "two basic items necessary to sustain life."

Midnight Cowboy
From DrinksMixer

2 oz bourbon whiskey
1 oz dark rum
1/2 oz heavy cream

Combine ingredients in a shaker half-filled with ice cubes, shake well, and strain into a cocktail glass.

I think perhaps we should replace some of the cream with coconut milk, what do you guys think?
