A Whiskey Concoction for Jack Friday

Every Friday this month of September is #JackFriday and Drinkstuff has celebrating by giving you some Jack Daniels cocktail recipes for you to enjoy on this fabulous day!

On the first Friday of the month, the kind and generous people at Jack Daniels give each member of staff at their distillery a bottle of Jack Daniels. Why? Because they feel like it. It’s also very appreciated by everyone as Jack Daniel’s famous distillery is in Lynchburg, Tennessee in a ‘dry’ county. How very ironic. So in a place where their employees can’t even buy the drink they make in shops or restaurants, you can imagine how thankful they are to their employers. It’s no wonder the first Friday of every month at Jack Daniels is called ‘Good Friday’.

However, this month, Jack Daniels has decided to extend their generosity to us and not just for the first Friday, no – it’ll be for every Friday this month! All around the country businesses will be getting involved in the celebrations by throwing their own #JackFriday events. In true Southern style, there will be parties full of music and good old Jack Daniels whiskey. Have a look at some of the events going on around the country that you can enjoy:

The Blackbird – 37 – 39 Leven Street, Edinburgh

The Blackbird cocktail bar is opening up the ‘Jack Shack’ outside where they’ll be serving up all sorts of cocktails, from a delicious Charred Peach Swizzle to the Mango Old Fashioned. Get into the #JackFriday celebrations in beautiful city of Edinburgh.

Black Dog Ballroom – Basement Affleck’s Palace, Afflecks, Church Street, Manchester

Manchester is also getting in on the festivities and at the Black Dog Ballroom, their helping you relax with a Tennessee Highball. Celebrate in style with a Singapore Sling and hop on down to the Black Dog.

Record Factory – 17 Byres Road, Glasgow

Scotland are in on the action so no one misses out this month. Head down to the Record Factory to get a taste of #JackFriday with one of the many whiskey cocktails they’ll be serving. Sip on the Velvet Elvis or try the Cherry & Apricot Manhattan. Both will warm you through this month as summer comes to a close and autumn heads in.

Rub Smokehouse & Bar – Regency Wharf, Broad Street, Birmingham

If you’re from the Midlands and want to get involved, get yourself down to the Rub Smokehouse & Bar for a flavour of true Tennessee whiskey. They’ll be serving up numerous southern cocktails from the Lynchburg Lemon Drop to the Vino Las Vegas. Even try out the witty named Forget It Jack cocktail, which is an exotic twist on the traditional JD drink (blended with lemongrass and ginger cordial, lemon juice, pear syrup, ginger ale and of course, a dash of Chinese Five Spice bitters!). Yum! You’ll even get a fortune cookie!

Venn Street Records – 78 Venn Street, London

Of course London is joining on #JackFriday. Bustle on down to Venn Street Records for a Black Daniels or a tasty Tennessee Vanilla Flip. Forget about summer and how we’ve had our last Bank Holiday of the year and get into the autumn mood with a warm cocktail to blew away your blues and stresses of the week and weather.
