Holiday Cocktails – We’ve got your recipes here

This holiday season we’ll be mixing things up again, cocktail wise, and Jack Daniels has created just the thing for the occasion; their new Tennessee Rye.

With 151 years of whisky making experience, the Jack Daniel Distillery had definitely earned the cred to create a rye whisky in its own signature way – spicy yet smooth, great on its own, but also makes a fine cocktail. So fine in fact that it merited its own competition.  Canada’s bartenders honoured Jack with 21 cocktails that cover every occasion.  All 21 cocktails were presented to Jack Daniel’s and Canadians across the country during the first three weeks of November and these were the three cocktails that won the people’s choice award for the best holiday cocktail!
