Jack's Tennessee Sweet Tea

I have to admit I am really on a Jack kick. I love the woody, smoky, sour and sweet flavors that come through in Jack's Tennessee Whiskey. Whether we are developing cocktails, main dishes or desserts I have found this whiskey to translate perfectly.




We have some new recipes coming up in the next few weeks, but today I have to tell you all about my new favorite Jack cocktail.  I grew up in Florida (which is kind of the south, right?).  So I grew up drinking sweet tea.  I love sweet tea!  Ok, maybe not Si from Duck Dynasty kinda sweet tea love.  But, I really enjoyed it on occasion.

With my love of sweet tea and appreciation of Jack's flavor its no surprise that Chad developed my favorite Jack cocktail yet.  Jack's Tennessee Sweet Tea tastes just like sweet tea with lemon!!!  Perfectly balanced sweet and sour notes with a zing from lemon, just like your favorite Sweet Tea with a KICK!

This is the perfect cocktail to kick back with and enjoy. Kick your heels off and pour one tonight!

    1. Well, no actual tea is in it, but you would never guess because it tastes like the sweet tea I grew up on.

  4. FYI, Si's tea is, surprisingly, unsweetened. I suppose, much like my father, he lost the sweetening habit in the military.

    Now time for a drink!
