Winter Jack Warmer

Jack Daniel’s Winter Jack is a seasonal blend that’s perfect in this cocktail. It combines Jack Daniels with cider and spices and is especially delicious in a Winter Jack Warmer with half and half.

Winter Jack Warmer

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!

Winter Jack Warmer

Jack sent me not just a bottle of sweet boozy cider but also 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.

What could be more ‘Winter Jack Warmer’ than a warm boozy cocktail with an earmuff hat? A girl just has to take care of herself and medicate sometimes, am I right?

  1. I made this as directed except a nit more than 2 ounces of Jack dropped into it! Oh well! Lol! Very delicious and warm on this cold night. I liked the ideas that the other commentors said also.

  2. So since I was low on the required ingredients I made these swaps… Used Carmel macchiato coffee creamer, warmed it up in a saucepan. Then when warm, added the winter jack. Warmed again. Poured into mugs, sprinkled with ground nutmeg and cinnamon. Oh my, a delicious drink to keep you toasty on a 5 degree night!!! Only problem is it is too easy, went through two bottles of winter jack one evening!!!

    1. Yum, sounds great. I recently gave a bottle to someone and they wondered if they would use it. I told them to be fair and give it a shot (or two?). 🙂

      Ha…she called me yesterday and said it was almost gone; I knew it!

  3. I had to alter this just a bit due to not having exactly everything. Swapped out the caramel for butterscotch syrup and use half and half with milk. Was SO good! Thanks for a perfect cold weather drink 🙂 finally know what to do with the JD Winter Jack now.

    1. Sounds perfect to me. I seldom run to the grocery to get an ingredient or two and am always swapping out something…looks like you found some winners!
