JACK & BLACK
Today called for a drink I discovered recently on a whim. I've been going through really bad Bloody Mary kicks in the past couple of month, and a few weeks ago I ran out of vodka. Only other alternative we had at home was whiskey. Normally I'd reserve whiskey for the colder days (really just DAY), but this might be my new favorite summer drink. It's very light and refreshing. Here's the recipe:
Jack & Black
2 oz Jack Daniels Tennessee Whiskey
12 oz Iced Black Tea
1 tbs Honey Simple Syrup
squeeze of lemon
Next, make your simple syrup. In a small saucepan heat up 2 tbs of water and 2 tbs of honey. Stir until the honey has melted down. This only takes a couple of minutes. Remove from the stove and let cool. Once the syrup has cooled, add it to your iced tea.
Now we are ready to assemble! In a mason jar, add ice, whiskey, black tea and simple syrup. Finish with a squeeze of lemon, stir and ENJOY!!
