Jack Daniels Cocktails

Straight up, on the rocks, mixed with coke, or a pull from the bottle, Jack Daniels Tennessee Whiskey has been a whiskey lover’s favorite since the distillery’s inception in 1866. As popular it is, Jack Daniels is not traditionally used in many more complicated mixed drinks, nor do its drinkers necessarily want it to be. Jack Daniels cocktails do exist, however, and those who enjoy them take the time to come up with creative and delicious recipes. Try these tasty recipes and you may never go back to straight Jack again.
