This Tennessee twist on a Sidecar cocktail is refreshing and sweet, with just enough of a kick to let you know the weekend is here!
The Tennessee Sidecar is a variation of the classic Sidecar cocktail, which is traditionally made with cognac, orange liqueur and lemon. The Sidecar is a throwback to when cocktails were made with just a few ingredients, proving that a drink doesn't have to be fancy to taste good.
So what makes this version of a Sidecar so special? A little thing Jack Daniel's likes to call "Tennessee Honey" The original kings of Tennessee Whiskey have really created something special with this one. Honey liqueur blended with Jack Daniel's original Tennessee Whiskey creates a flavor combination with just enough heat, but still goes down as smooth as...well, honey!
A blend of Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey and a unique honey liqueur of our own making, for a taste that’s one-of-a-kind and unmistakably Jack. With hints of honey and a finish that’s naturally smooth, Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey offers a taste of the unexpected.
