Your House Your Rules, Jack Drinks!
So is it a whiskey or a bourbon? We’ll take what the makers of Jack Daniels whiskey have been preaching all along and end this debate once and for all. Having set that aside, at this point, we can finally focus on the pure pleasure that you can derive whenever you choose to sip on a Jack.
If you’ve always believed there’s just one Jack well, you’re in for a surprise. Jack Daniels is a drink that can be enjoyed countless ways. In this post, we’ll tell you about how best to enjoy three of the core variants from the Jack Daniels range, whether you prefer your glass of Jack to come with a mixer or just straight up Jack.
1. Jack Daniels No.7.
This Jack is particularly famous for on-the-rocks sipping. If you haven’t tried it with a Coke, though, then you’re missing out on one of the world’s most-loved tippled soda drinks. For those days when you prefer your Jack’s delivered with an untouchable personality, make it a Godfather No. 7.
What you’ll need:
1 jigger (half if you prefer less tipple) Jack Daniel’s Old No. 7
1 tablespoon Amaretto
Coke for the rest of the way
Start by filling up a ball glass with cubed ice. Pour over Jack’s Old No. 7. Follow through with Amaretto. Lastly, fill the rest of the way with soda. Give it a light stir. Add a wedge of orange or a twist of orange peel to garnish. Serve very cold.
2. Jack Daniels Single Barrel.
The Jacks Single Barrel is a collection of variants that include Single Barrel Select, Rye, Barrel Strength, and 100 Proof. These variants are bottled between 45% ABV and 50% ABV, all of which are great for creating Jacks-based cocktails. Well, not every cocktail. This selection is best used for classic cocktails that do not mask their rich and complex flavours, like the Old Fashioned.
What you’ll need:
1 jigger Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Select
1 tablespoon simple syrup
2 dashes Angostura bitters
Orange peel for garnish
Start by filling a ball glass with ice cubes. In a mixing glass, add the first three ingredients. Stir. Add crushed ice and stir again. Strain into the rock glass and pour over the ice cubes. Garnish with orange peels.
3. Jacks Daniels Gentleman Jack.
“Doule mellowed for exceptional smoothness,” this variant delivers a pleasantly layered complexity that a palate trained in whiskey will find electrifyingly satisfying. Surprisingly spicy with an oaky and citrusy personality, it’s perfect for neat drinking just as it combines well with more sophisticated mixers for Jack Daniels. You’ll be surprised how well it tastes when blended with ginger ale.
What you’ll need:
1 jigger Gentleman Jack
1 can of ginger beer or ale
Dash of freshly squeezed lime
Fill a ball glass with ice cubes. Pour over Gentleman Jack. Keep in mind that you can always make this Jack Daniels cocktail with more or less of the whiskey tipple depending on your preference. Pour over the ginger ale. Give it a light stir. Squeeze the lime. Garnish with a lime wedge.
