Lynchberg Lemonade

If I had to design the drink equivalent of my southern-wannabe roommate, nothing would work as well as this Tennessee-inspired cocktail. The Lynchberg Lemonade -- perfect for afternoons of porch sitting and pooch walking set to the tune of Sugarland and Little Big Town -- looks equally murderous and marvelous. But what is most interesting about this drinky drink is the history behind it: Lynchberg is a DRY town, yet home to the Jack Daniel's Whiskey Distillery. Funny!

For a Lynchberg Lemonade, courtesy of DrinkOfTheWeek:

Fill a collins glass with ice. Add in:

1 oz.Jack Daniels
1/2 oz.Triple Sec
1 oz. Sweet & Sour

Stir Well

Drink that whiskey like no one else can!
