There was an interesting show on the tube last night about the history of Jack Daniels Old No. 7 Tennessee Whiskey. It prompted me to take a gander at Jack’s website, where I found a few decent drink recipes incorporating the sweet booze bottled at America’s oldest registered distillery. Of course the one that had both the words “Tropical” and “Swing” in it caught my attention!
The Tropical Swing
1 oz of Gentleman Jack Rare Tennessee Whiskey
1 oz simple syrup
½ oz fresh lemon juice
1 oz of pineapple juice
Shake ingredients in a shaker with ice and strain into a large rocks glass over the rocks. Garnish with a cherry.

That sounds good. You don’t see very many tropical drinks with whiskey. It’s always nice to have a whiskey recipe on hand for company. Mahalo!
I agree, having whiskey and vodka-based Tiki drink recipes on hand makes a world of difference at a party.
