Jack Daniels Sweet Tea

Jack Daniels Sweet Tea is a must-make summer drink! Tenneessee whiskey and honey are the stars of this fabulous sweet tea cocktail recipe!

I have to admit I am really on a Jack Daniel's 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 whiskey cocktail.  

Jack Daniels Sweet Tea

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 Sid from Duck Dynasty kinda sweet tea love. But, I really enjoy it on occasion.

With my love of sweet tea and appreciation of Tennessee whiskey its no surprise that Chad developed my favorite Jack cocktail yet. Jack's 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!

Helpful Tips to make Jack Daniels Sweet Tea

  1. Going to pick up some Jack for these drink recipes. Is there a slushy drink I can make and freeze so when unexpected company drop by I am ready?

    1. Sounds exciting. We have some Jack Daniels food recipes you should try too!

  2. I love the looks & sound of this! I have recently made everything from buttercream to baked beans to ice cream with Jack or his friend, Jim Beam, and love the flavor profile. Pinned!

    1. I love cooking and baking with spirits. Like you said the flavors are amazing.

    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!

    1. Thanks for the tip! I didn't know his was unsweetened. I prefer my tea sweet. Enjoy!
