Jack Daniel’s Winter Jack is a seasonal blend that is so perfect in this cocktail; it combines Jack Daniels with cider and spices and it’s especially delicious in this recipe warmed with half and half.
When you have an inventory of hundreds of bottle of booze and you get one as a gift, it’s easy to be a bit meh about it if you can imagine. But the other day I was not meh at all, I was more Oh MY! The folks at Jack Daniels sent this to me as a holiday gift and I opened it on the day of the first snow in Denver. What a perfect day to try a Winter Jack Warmer, right?
I’m actually the one who has been a bit meh this week; one side of my throat is on fire and little things like swallowing have been a pain. I mean a real pain. I guess the one disadvantage to all the kiddos around me is that I pick up all their germs even if they don’t get sick.
I’ve had more colds and sore throats in the three years since I moved here than I had in a dozen years! I hate them but wouldn’t trade them for the world if it meant the kids. I love them more than I hate being sick!
Jack sent me not just a bottle of sweet booze but this adorable winter hat. Maybe now I’ll actually go out to shovel and cover my head; would be a good idea right? As it was, I finished this post and then headed straight to my warm, cozy bed with this cocktail in hand and I’m tempted to also wear this adorable hat.
A girl just has to take care of herself and medicate sometimes, am I right?
Jack Daniel’s Winter Jack is a seasonal blend of apple cider liqueur, Jack Daniel’s Old No. 7 Tennessee Whiskey, and holiday spices that is based on an original family recipe from Jack’s home in Lynchburg, Tennessee.
Even if you live in a place where it’s never cold or snowy, you’ll never regret being prepared. This is a great cocktail when you’re sitting in front of the fire with family and friends (don’t I wish!). It is only available for a limited time but if you can find it, it’s worth looking.
It’s got a pretty low alcohol content so while it should be served warm I was careful once it was added. I warmed the half and half and caramel sauce first and then when I thought it was just right, I poured in the Winter Jack and heated it for just a few seconds more. You don’t want to burn off the alcohol that it does have!
If it’s impossible to find, make your own blend with a bottle of Jack Daniels bourbon and some apple cider with a bit of cinnamon. Won’t be the same but will be close and sometimes close really is good enough…Cheers!
