Top 10 Jack Daniel’s Whiskey Drinks with Recipes
What is Jack Daniel’s
Jack Daniel’s whiskey (popularly shortened to simply ‘Jack Daniel’s) is one of the most popular whiskeys in the world, manufactured in Lynchburg, Tennessee in the United States. Available in many variations, with quite a few products being vegan as well, this prestigious bourbon Tennessee whiskey is carb- and gluten-free, containing about 65 calories per 1 fl oz serving. However, the ‘proof’ and the alcohol percentage (abv) vary between labels, and that determines whether one can drink it straight (neat).

Cocktails and Mixed Drinks to make with Jack Daniel’s Whiskey
1. Homemade Jack Daniel’s Downhome Punch Recipe
This is an ideal party drink to surprise your guests. To make it, first, take a large pitcher or can and pour in 1 part of each of Jack Daniel’s Tennessee whiskey, 7-Up soda or club soda, peach schnapps and sweet & sour mix, along with 2 parts of orange juice and a dash of grenadine. Pour plenty of ice cubes and stir for a while again. Strain into drinking glasses and serve chilled.
2. Jack Daniel’s-based Alcoholic Cold-Coffee-Cooler Cocktail
Simply mix 1½ oz vodka, Southern Comfort, and Jack Daniel’s Gentleman Jack Whiskey, each, with ¾ oz cold coffee liqueur. Strain over ice cubes and drink.
[If you would prefer the flavor of tea (‘chai’) over coffee, you can replace the coffee liqueur with any good chai liqueur like Wild Moon Chai Spice.]
3. Simple Jack Daniel’s Electric Lemonade Party Drink
Gently stir ¾ oz of both of Jack Daniel’s Lynchburg Lemonade whiskey* and Berry Punch, with the same amount of blue curacao liqueur, along with 1 oz of sweet and sour mix, in a standard cocktail glass. Fill the rest with lemonade/Sprite, or any energy drink like Monster, and throw in a lemon slice before you serve.
[*Interestingly, you can also make the premixed ‘Lynchburg Lemonade whiskey’ right at home. For that, just mix 1½ oz plain Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey with 1 oz of each of triple sec and lemon juice, and finally, about 4 oz of lime soda.]
4. Urban Fruit Punch with Jack Daniel’s Honey Whiskey
Combine 3 oz of chilled orange juice (or apple/pineapple, if you would prefer) with ¼ oz of each of amaretto, ginger ale, with ½ oz of Southern Comfort and JD Tennessee Honey whiskey, each, along with a hint of Jägermeister. That’s all.
5. Blended Bomb Punch with Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Fire
Making this long bar drink is really easy. Mix ½ oz of Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Fire Whiskey (cinnamon-flavored), bourbon whiskey, Scotch whiskey and Bailey’s Irish cream, each, with ½ cup of any cola (like Coke) and ½ a pint of Guinness stout. Tastes great with ice cubes.
6. Christmas Eggnog Recipe with Jack Daniel’s Sinatra Select
This recipe is a great dessert for your any holiday parties like Xmas, Halloween or Thanksgiving.
In a mixer-grinder, smoothly blend 6 eggs with ½ a bottle of Jack Daniel’s Sinatra Select (or JD Honey) at high speed. When done, lower the speed and blend again along with 1 cup of brandy, 1-2 oz liquid dark chocolate, 12 oz evaporated milk, 8 oz condensed milk, and 1 tbsp vanilla essence. Transfer in a bowl and store it in your fridge for a couple of hours (or until the drink thickens). Serve ice-cold in small mugs with standing cinnamon sticks.
6. Mixed-Fruit Girly Drink Using Jack Daniel’s Green Label Whiskey
Pour 1½ oz of Jack Daniel’s in a chilled glass. Now, fill the rest of the glass with combinations of 3-4 different fruit juices according to your taste (like watermelon, cranberry, or raspberry). Stir mildly. Top with a scoop of ice cream and serve with a pink straw.
7. Tropical Milky Shooter with Jack Daniel’s Winter Jack
Pour quarter oz of each of JD Winter Jack Tennessee Cider, JD Single Barrel Rye liqueur, and coconut rum, each, in the shot glass, and then add 1 oz of chilled coconut milk to it. Sprinkle a pinch of nutmeg powder and shoot in immediately.
8. Slush Recipe Using Jack Daniel’s Black Label Whiskey
In a large bowl, mix 2 cups of strongly brewed sweet tea liquor (cold or at room temperature), 1½ cups of JD Black Label (or Blue Label) whiskey, and 12 oz of lemonade, 6 oz of pineapple juice concentrate (both thawed), and 6 cups of chilled water. Keep the bowl in the freezer undisturbed for 7-8 hours. Take out the bowl and stir it for a while, and then freeze it for 2 more hours. Take it out from the freezer 15 minutes before you decide to serve. Stir it and serve in ice cream bowls.
[NB: You can store it in your freezer for up to 2 days.]
8. Jack Daniel’s White Rabbit Saloon & Beer Mixed Mug-Shots
Pour 2 oz JD White Rabbit Saloon whiskey in each of your shot glasses (better, if you have mug-shaped shot glasses), and fill the rest with chilled Jack Daniel’s beer. Say ‘cheers’ and shoot in.
9. Hot Drink with Jack Daniel’s 27 Gold and Silver Select
Combine ½ oz of each of JD 27 Gold and JD Silver Select with 5 oz of Dr Pepper, and warm in a small, deep bowl. Do not let it boil. Pour into a mug and top with whipped cream (at room temperature) before you serve.
10. Easy Jack Daniel’s Quickie-Party Cocktail
Combine 1½ oz of each of Sambuca and Jack Daniel’s Whiskey in a cocktail glass. Serve with ice and a lemon wedge.
Finally, being a responsible drinker is important. However, to keep you on the safer side, we have something extra to share with you. Call this a shooter-party recipe or a ‘trick’, but nothing can be simpler than this one to win a bet with your friends, as they pass out on your couch, and you still standing for the next shot. For this, just mix a teaspoon of sugar to an ounce of Jack Daniel Whiskey before you shoot in. Probably, this is how Frank Sinatra made JD his favorite drink and got a label in his name! Happy Drinking!
