Sign me up for anything Jack Daniel's
I am totally a whiskey girl. If there is a whiskey cocktail on the menu, I'm probably going to order it. And Jack Daniel's Honey Jack is one of my all time favorites but I hadn't been giving the ready-to-drink cocktail line from Jack Daniel's much of a thought until I saw this peach cocktail. Maybe it is was the flash back to drinking their old version of cocktails that deterred me. Do you remember those? They were the smaller bottles and they came in a four pack. If you as a guy to buy you something at the liquor store they almost always bought those. Just me? Maybe that was just the country kids I grew up with.
Anyway, I love anything peach and I love Jack Daniel's liquors so I decided to give this one a try. Could it be better than those little bottles of my early 20s? Let's find out.
Here is my official review of Jack Daniel's Southern Peach:
Okay, this is really good! I was a little concerned this was going to be too close to my early drinking days when Jack Daniel's Down Home Punch was my jam. And maybe it is, it's been too long since I had one of those, but this was darn good.
It has an awesome peach flavor, it's pretty sweet but not over-the-top gross sweet, and it is on the lower end of the boozy scale coming in at 4.8 ABV. I will not hesitate to pick these up again, especially for my friend that love a good sweet cocktail but isn't much of a drinker. And then I'll drink these too because they are just that good. Yum!
One shaker = not sweet at all // Five shakers = your teeth may curl
This one is pretty sweet. While it doesn't boast the natural ingredients a lot of the smaller, craft cocktails brands do, this is Jack Daniel's. They know what they are doing and the sweetness doesn't taste artificial. It just tastes like sweet peaches and I love it.
One shaker = does this have booze? Five shakers = Four Lokos
Officially this one rings in at 4.8% ABV which is less than a light beer. This time I did drink the whole bottle, because it was so tasty, and I was pretty relaxed at the end so there is enough booze to mildly relax you.
Would I buy this ready to drink cocktail again?
I would. I thought this was a super tasty cocktail and since it is light in booze it would be great to take to a BBQ or tailgate or some place you'd like to drink but not rage.
