‘Something About Christmas’ Cocktail with Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Rye
When it comes to fool-proof gift ideas, I’m a firm believer that items like alcohol or wine are one of them. Unless who you are gifting does not drink a lick of either, then you really can’t go wrong with showing up to a party with a bottle or putting one under the tree of a loved one. For me, that’s most definitely the men in my life.
While all the men in my life are not big drinkers, they most certainly appreciate a fine tasting bottle, especially my older brother who stocks his newly renovated bar at all times and constantly loves having us all over to sit at the bar and pretend we are on the show cheers. For these reasons and more, I’ve decided to gift him a bottle of the new Tennessee Rye from Jack Daniel’s.
Just in time for the holidays, Jack Daniel’s releases the new Tennessee Rye after 151 years of whisky making expertise to help create a rye whisky just right – spicy in flavour but smooth. Available in limited quantities, also makes this bottle the perfect gift to that special person on your list – like my brother! And rather than place it under the tree, I had him over to the condo, opened the bottle and we enjoyed a little cocktail that I replicated from one of Canada’s bartenders who honoured Jack with a 21 cocktail salute.
