Gentleman Jack Mint Julep

Happy Weekend! This has been one of the longest months ever! I sent my kids to their grandparents, thinking that I would get so many things done while they were gone. I should have known that I was kidding myself! I got NOTHING accomplished that I set out to do!

The ONE thing that I did get was rest. I took some serious downtime, and just a little mental health recoup. I am sure my couch will forever contain an indentation of my body from these past two weeks. As I was working on relaxation, and channel surfing, I came across a Jack Daniel’s recipe that looked delicious, from the Jack Daniel’s UK website. So I pulled my hair into a messy bun, and headed to the Class Six (no judgement zone, right?).

Let me tell you, this is one my favorite drink mixes! I have this printed, pasted, and posted this to the front of my fridge. I cannot wait to share this with friends when they come over for the next BBQ in the backyard. Super easy to make, and of course, Jack Daniels,  the king of whisky never lets you down with the smooth and savory taste! Try this delicious mix today!

Head over to your Class Six today and see what amazing deals Jack Daniel’s has to offer!

Give this classic Kentucky cocktail a double smooth Tennessee twist with double mellowed Gentleman Jack.
