CBD Brave Bull Recipe
Because the Brave Bull only calls for two ingredients, it’s an excellent opportunity to showcase a higher-quality tequila. While this doesn’t mean you should use an expensive añejo brand, you may want to consider grabbing a higher-grade reposado.
For those who don’t know what the heck we just said, don’t worry. The terms “reposado” and “añejo” refer to how long a tequila was aged. While reposados are usually aged between 2 – 12 months, a good añejo should be at least two to three years old. There are even some extra fancy añejo brands that have been aged for over three years.
Since añejo tequilas are pricey, most people don’t use them for mixing. Instead, you’re supposed to savor an añejo’s complex flavors on its own. Reposados, however, offer more flavors than unaged “blanco” tequila, but they’re nowhere close to an añejo in terms of price.
While blancos work fine in the Brave Bull, this is one cocktail where you could pick up the subtle nuances of a higher-grade tequila. Be sure to keep this in mind as you visit your local liquor shop.

Even if you’re not a cocktail connoisseur, this ingredients list may look mighty familiar. Can you guess what famous cocktail the Brave Bull is related to? If you’re still having trouble, here’s a hint: switch the tequila for vodka.
Yes, the Brave Bull is a rendition of the Black Russian! That also means this cocktail is one ingredient away from being a White Russian variation. If you love this Big Lebowski beverage, just add some heavy cream to your Brave Bull.
