I received a bottle of Jack Daniels last Christmas during a present exchange at work. Yes I received booze at work and I didn’t complain. Except for the fact that you can typically find me drinking tequila on the rocks, not whiskey. Turns out I just needed the right recipe to get me into Jack. And this one is super simple and will be great for cozying up in your jammies by the fire. Okay let’s be real, I live in a highrise so a fire place is not practical and I’m drinking this while watching Scandal. Best. Show. Ever.
- 2.5 oz of Jack Daniels
- 2 oz of Apple Cider
- Dash of nutmeg
- Dash of clove
- Pinch of brown sugar
- Prep your martini glass (or coupe glass) by wetting the rim with either lemon or if you have a shallow dish, you can use the apple cider to do this too. Rim the glass with turbinado sugar, or a blend of the nutmeg, clove and brown sugar.
- Add all ingredients and ice to a shaker and shake vigorously.
- Pour into a chilled martini glass and garnish with an apple slice.
