The Four Horsemen is a cocktail containing four hard liquors and named after the Four Horsemen of the ApocalypseFact|date=March 2007. The name of the drink is derived from the fact that the most common brand names of each ingredient are also male given names and the drinks have a high alcohol content (and therefore tend to have a very strong effect on human physiology). Additionally, the four brand names usually all begin with the letter "J" (see sidebar), giving further unity to the concept of the "Four Horsemen".


*Pure Whiskey variant - replace the Jose Cuervo with Jameson (Note that this still retains the "J" theme.)
*Four Horsemen and Hell Follows - Adds one part of Everclear
*Four Horsemen Go Hunting - Adds one part of Wild Turkey
*Alternate version - common variant that contains Goldschlager, Jaegermeister, Rumple Minze, and Bacardi 151. [ [ "Four Horsemen recipe" at] ]
*Three ingredient variants - If only three of the J ingredients are used, it is often referred to as "Three Wise Men" [ [ "Three Wise Men recipe" at] ] . Similarly themed variants as above exist for the three ingredient version as well (e.g. "Three Wise Men go Hunting")
