Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey Follow-up

So I posted about the new Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey the morning I found out and I mentioned that I would follow up as soon as I got a bottle. Well, I lied. I was so excited that I went and bought one later that day.

So? It was as fantastic as I thought! Like I mentioned, I’ve had Seagrams & Wild Turkey’s Honey liqueurs, and I like them both. But I don’t know if it’s that I’m biased towards Jack Daniel’s or what but I think it may be my favorite. Now, of course, how can I judge without a side-by-side comparison, but I think the little bit of caramel may have tipped the Tennessee Honey in my favor.

As I also mentioned, Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey has a Facebook page and on there they have several recipes. The ones that I tried first was the “Honey Tea”. The ingredients they had up we as such:

Ingredients
1 oz. Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey
1/2 oz. cinnamon schnapps
1/2 oz. triple sec
3 oz. unsweetened tea

Combine ingredients in a tall glass over ice, garnish with a lemon twist, and enjoy responsibly!

Now I thought the cinnamon schnapps might be a bit too much, so I left that out. I used Teajava’s unsweetened tea and store brand triple sec.

I loved this. I couldn’t drink too much of it though, just because of the overly sweetness that a liqueur has. But I can’t wait for the next really hot day to give this one another try, maybe this time a “Honey Arnold Palmer”?

The next cocktail that I tried, I was able to squeeze in before the bottle was completely empty was what they called a “Jack & Swarmy”. It went like this:

Ingredients
1.5 oz. Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey
1/4 oz. lime juice (one squeeze lime wedge)
4 oz. ginger ale or ginger beer

This one was a bit easier to drink in larger quantities! All I had was some Schweppes Ginger Ale, but I want to try this again with a stronger Ginger Beer.

There’s a few more cocktails that I want to try to make with this stuff, maybe we’ll just save those for future Podcasts. Until then, go get you some!

Highball

On Episode #1, the Inaugural And A Beard We Go Podcast, we mixed up one of our favorite drinks and the favorite drink of our first guests on a future Episode of our Podcast, Andy Cauble & Justin Armao.  That drink would happen to be the “Highball”.

A Highball you say?

Yes! A Highball.

Well, let me tell you how to make a Highball…  Just do this…

You can use any Bourbon or the traditionally used Canadian Rye, but we’re Jack Daniels fans, so we use our favorite Tennessee Whiskey.  For a twist, try using Ginger Beer if you can find it.

A little tidbit for you, the glass called the Highball…

… was actually named after the drink, go figure!

Cheers!

Episode 101: Casting off Unto a Sea of Facial Hair!

Here’s to hoping everything works!

This is our first Podcast, EVER!  So, please, be kind when listening…  We do get better, PROMISE!

None-the-less, we had a blast making this and hope you get into it too.

In this Episode, we were drinking Hi-Balls (Jack and Ginger Ale), we chat about Valhalla Table in Costa Mesa, we discussed Christian Bale in “The Machinist” and Equilibrium“.  We both watched “Human Centipede“… Yikes…  I had just seen “Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows”  Mentioned a bit about “Lost“, “Top Chef“, “Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations“, and out new favorite “Louie” with Louis C.K.

And if you take anything out of this, we want you to take this: Shop locally, support the little guy, FUCK WAL-MART.

Cheers!
