Leave the lemonade for the kids and mix up this Lynchburg Lemonade for your next BBQ – a Jack Daniels-spiked lemon cocktail that is surprisingly smooth – with just a little bit of whiskey kick!
Lynchburg Lemonade Recipe
The $13 million Lynchburg Lemonade cocktail was subject to a huge lawsuit back in the ’80s when Jack Daniel’s first started promoting it – which solidified this cocktail’s place in pop culture. Who doesn’t want to try the cocktail that was the subject of a $13 million lawsuit?!
(It’s kind of the cocktail equivalent to that Neiman Marcus cookie recipe that comes around in chain letters every once in a while.)
While this cocktail won’t cost you $13 million, it will sneak up on you like it’s smooth-talking Eastern cousin, the Long Island Iced Tea.
This smooth lemonade cocktail is perfect for serving at summer parties – or just mix up a glass for a refreshing summer drink on the porch.
