How to make a Lynchburg Lemonade

Ingredients you'll need …

About the Lynchburg Lemonade

The best traditional lemonade EVER!

As my good friend Jack Daniels is made in Lynchburg, Tennesse; they thought it would be rude not to invent a drink that could be sipped and enjoyed…on a hot summers day!

This is the result, rather nice I think


Instructions

Get yourself a nice clean high ball glass and fill with cubed ice

Roll your lemon for around 10–15 seconds on a chopping board – this will make it a lot more juicy

Cut this in half and place it into your lemon squeezer

Measure out 25ml into your jigger and place into your Boston glass, followed by 12.5ml of Gomme or Sugar Syrup

Then add 37.5ml of Jack Daniels into your 50ml measure, i.e. 3/4 of the way up and then top up with 12.5ml Cointreau – remembering to do this over the glass, just in case there is a little spillage…don’t want to waste any :)

Top with cubed ice

Put the Boston tin on top at a slight angle and hit it firmly, creating a seal

Left hand on the tin, right hand on the bottom of the glass, move your right hand up 45 degrees and SHAKE!!!!

Once the tin is frosted on the outside, then its showtime

Place the Boston tin & tin glass in your left hand, with two fingers on each – the tin should be at the bottom

Then using the palm of your hand, hit the tin where it meets the glass, give it some welly otherwise nothing will happen

Never ever ever do this on a bar top as it’s very dangerous

Hey presto the two will come apart

Get your chilled glasse and discard the ice & water, flicking to remove ever last drop – maybe over your mate if they have been bugging you to make this quicker

Put your Hawthorn strainer into the tin and using a fine strainer with the other hand, pour into your high ball glass.

If needed top with more ice, and fill with lemonade.

Garnish with a lemon wedge and two straws

Sit back and enjoy
