How to Make a 3 Wise Men Shot

Few shots have a more misleading name than the Three Wise Men. A combination of three different types of whiskey -- Tennessee whiskey, Scotch whisky and Kentucky bourbon whiskey -- the Three Wise Men goes down smoothly while packing an 80-proof plus punch. The ultimate whiskey-lover's shot, the Three Wise Men is a simple mixed cocktail that does not require fancy techniques or equipment. Mix up your own version of the shot to combine different types of whiskeys into a single potent and delicious drink.
