This cocktail is rare chance to use Tennessee whiskey. Jack Daniels is U.S. single-malt whiskey distilled from corn mash with rye (used sour mash technology) and filtered through charcoal. One of promotional cocktail of Jack Daniels is Lynchburg Lemonade (modern concoction by Tony Mayson from Alabama).

The Lynchburg Lemonade Cocktail is so tasty, sweety, citrus concoction. Is admirable cocktail for happy summer days.

In my new book The Craft of the Cocktail: Everything You Need to Know to Be a Master Bartender, with 500 Recipes by Dale DeGroff was found another recipe of Lynchburg Lemonade Cocktail in edition of the Dale DeGroff:

Lynchburg Lemonade (Dale`s DeGroff version)

45 ml Jack Daniel’s whiskey
30 triple sec (Cointreau)
20 ml sweet and sour
7-UP
Shake first three ingredients and strain into an ice-filled highball glass. Top with 7-UP and garnish with lemon wedge and orange slice.

The Dale`s version is great! The Lynchburg Lemonade Cocktail (Dale`s version) is very smooth and refreshing drink.
