JACK DANIEL'S FAVORITE SUMMER COCTAILS
A new week has just started and I am super happy because today I found time in order to share with you the recipes of some of my favorites summer cocktails!
The summer is already here, and my mind is dreaming an afternoon next to the lake (or a sandy beach!), enjoying my JACK DANIEL’S Lynchburg Lemonade and relax on my sunbed! Instead of this, for everyone like me, who is still working and are not on vacations, a barbecue in the garden, a cool festival or just a relaxing afternoon in your garden is also some good reasons to enjoy a summer cocktail! Moreover, JACK DANIEL'S cocktails are made only with a few ingredients, so that everyone can easily make them at home, without any great bartender knowledge!
Here are 3 of my favorite summer cocktails, each of this is based on one of the 3 different kinds of Jack Daniel's, the classic one - JACK DANIEL’S Old Nr. 7, the sweet one - JACK DANIEL’S Tennessee Honey and the aromatic - JACK DANIEL’S Gentleman Jack.
JACK DANIEL’S Lynchburg Lemonade
An easy way to have a refreshing drink on hot days, The Old No. 7, also called Black Label, is the basis of this light summer drink and convinces with its smoky-fresh note.
Ingredients: 4 cl JACK DANIEL'S Tennessee Whiskey, 2 cl Triple Sec (orange liqueur), some Lemonade, some Juice of a lemon, some Juice of a lime-neck, a cherry and Ice cubes.
It's so easy to make it!Mix all the ingredients (except the lemonade) with ice in a shaker, shake them briefly and then top up them with lemonade. The drink is served in a cocktail or a special Lemonade glass.
- JACK Honey & Lemonade
With its smoky-sweet note, rounded off by the fresh aromas of a lime, the JACK Honey and Lemonade fits perfectly to a warm summer evening. Whether as an after-work drink or aperitif, also the cocktail is quickly made using only a few ingredients!
Ingredients: 4 cl JACK DANIEL'S Tennessee Honey, some Lemonade, some juice of lime and ice cubes.
The cocktail is served in a longdrink glass with ice and lemonade. Press a lime wedge over it and use a lime pit as a decoration!
- JACK DANIEL’S Gentleman Jack Sour
This is one of the classic sours cocktails. Quick and easy to prepare, the blend of soft Gentleman Jack, sour lemon and sweet syrup is an unforgettable taste experience!
Ingredients: 4 cl GENTLEMAN JACK Tennessee Whiskey, 2 cl freshly squeezed lemon juice, 2 cl sugar, maple syrup or fresh orange juice, Cocktail cherries or a quarter of oranges and lemon slice.
Mix all the ingredients in a shaker and it's ready! The cocktail is served in a tumbler-glass with plenty of ice.At the end you can add an orange / lemon slice.
Except their taste, I really like that these cocktails are so easy to make them and It won't take time for me to enjoy.
I am also super happy because, again, this year there will be Jack Daniel's tent at the biggest summer festival's in Switzerland (like Openair St. .Gallen , Openair Frauenfeld Truckerfestival , Openair Gampel ). So there I will be able to enjoy my favorite cocktails while listening my favorites bands!
