Shot of the Week: Left Hook




They say there are two guarantees in life: death and taxes. Well, in San Antonio, we add playoff basketball to that equation. This is title town, Texas. Spurs fans know better than to get caught up in the drudgery of the regular season. We bide our time, but when April comes around, our blood pressure increases quicker than a Tony Parker fast break. When it’s time to take the edge off after another close Spurs victory, I go right for good ol’ black and white, Jack Daniels.  This week’s shot the “Left Hook,” is a tasty libation with some punch that you can pound when the Spurs knock out the competition. ½ ounce Southern Comfort 1 ounce Jack Daniels Tennessee whiskey Chilled or room temp, the choice is yours.
