Eat In. Lemonade and Jack Daniels [Thirsty Thursdays!].

Going with the lemonade theme of this week, I'm sharing an easy cocktail recipe that's great for the warm weather months. As a general rule, when you're using quality ingredients, it can never go too wrong, so with the two classics pictured above, no matter how you mix it, the drink is sure to be a hit.

Using a lowball glass, fill it with about four large ice cubes (or six smaller ones). This being a casual mixed drink, you can either free pour the Jack Daniel's to a level that looks about right (about 1/4 of the glass) or use a shot glass for measurement. Fill the rest with cold Newman's Own lemonade, stir lightly, and enjoy!

Depending on how much of the whiskey flavor you want in the drink, you might not want to fill the glass to where it looks like just lemonade, you'll want to see some of the whiskey color if you want the true marriage of the flavors.
