December 16, 2018

Hello, friends! We hope you guys are all enjoying the holiday season and merrymaking! Spending lots of times celebrating with family and friends enjoying each others company and making cherished memories. Today we are sharing a couple of holiday cheer recipes featuring Jack Daniels. With notes of fruit, oak, and spice, Single Barrel Rye will bring the holiday feeling to your taste buds. And the Single Barrel Select will keep you cozy with notes of vanilla and caramel. They’re perfect to serve on their own at New Year’s or in a cocktail. Cheers to the New Year with a Tennessee Mimosa or have a cozy new year with a spiked hot cocoa.

Tennessee Mimosa (Tennessee Christ-mosa when adding cranberries and rosemary sprig to the glass)

·         1 ounce Gentleman Jack Tennessee Whiskey
·         1 ounce pear nectar
·         1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice
·         1 sprig rosemary
·         Chilled sparkling wine (Cava, Prosecco or other sparkling wine)
·         Optional frozen cranberries for garnish
In a flute glass, add the whiskey, pear nectar and lemon juice. Place the Rosemary sprig in the glass and fill with chilled bubbly wine. Add frozen cranberries for holiday flair. 
Makes 1 drink

Spiked Nutella Hot Chocolate

·         1 1/2 cups milk
·         1/3 cup Nutella
·         1 cinnamon stick
·         Whipped cream or marshmallows, to top


1.      In a pot over medium-high heat, bring the milk to a simmer. Add the Nutella, stirring until it has melted and become incorporated. Add the cinnamon stick and bring to a simmer.
2.      Divide the Jack Daniels between two mugs, if using (2 ounces per mug). Ladle the hot milk mixture into the mugs and serve with fresh whipped cream or marshmallows. If serving with marshmallows, toast on a foil-lined baking sheet under the broiler for 30 to 45 seconds, until golden.


Big Batch Recipe (Serves 8): Increase the amounts to 6 cups of milk, 1 1/2 cups Nutella, and 1 cinnamon stick. For spiked versions, use 2 ounces of liquor per mug.
Fat free milk, whole milk, lactose-free milk, and nut or seed milks all work here.
