‘Tis the season—for the most anticipated films of the year to hit the big screen, as studios seek accolades and theater-goers seek respite from the winter chill. While there is endless holiday fare to choose from, there is only one movie that has the tradition, toughness and swagger to be Wild Turkey Bourbon's holiday pick. In honor of tomorrow’s opening of True Grit, the all-star remake of one of the all-time greatest films, Wild Turkey has put together this Old West cocktail with all the ingredients—the gold, the grit, the sarsaparilla and the whiskey—that shaped the now-mythic American West. So catch a matinee, come home and make yourself up a “Rooster.” What better way to follow a new classic than with another?
