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".

Variants

*Pure Whiskey variant - replace the Jose Cuervo with Jameson (Note that this still retains the "J" theme.)

*Alternate version - common variant that contains Goldschlager, Jaegermeister, Rumple Minze, and Bacardi 151. [ [http://www.drinknation.com/drink/Four-Horsemen "Four Horsemen recipe" at Drinknation.com] ]
*Three ingredient variants - If only three of the J ingredients are used, it is often referred to as "Three Wise Men" [ [http://www.drinknation.com/drink/Three-Wise-Men "Three Wise Men recipe" at Drinknation.com] ] . Similarly themed variants as above exist for the three ingredient version as well (e.g. "Three Wise Men go Hunting")
