What You Need to Make A Classic Jack & Coke

  • Coca-Cola – I prefer canned but you can use bottled as well
  • Jack Daniels Whiskey
  • Ice– I prefer the large cubes to keep the drink from watering down
  • Lime – Sliced. Optional but gives it a refreshing test.

Helpful Tips

  • Don’t make this ahead as the carbonation from the Coke will flatten.
  • You can make this in a large bowl, mix and then pour into individual glasses.
  • You can use silicone reusable ice cubes to keep the drinks from watering down.
  • When it comes to this drink, everyone has their own preference for the Coke to Jack ratio. If you want it stronger, simply remove an ounce from the Coke and add an ounce to the whiskey.
  • Technically, you can use any brand of coke or whiskey you like, but the quality will definitely vary when straying from the name brands.
  • If not using ice, go for a whiskey glass. It will be a better suited size for this drink without ice.
