Review:

A Lynchburg Lemonade made more interesting and balanced due to Picon Amer replacing triple sec.

History:

Adapted from a recipe created in 2023 by Cam Dawson, the longstanding UK Jack Daniel's brand ambassador.

"What do you do if a bar doesn't want to put a classic 'Lynchburg Lemonade' on their menu? Reinvent it, of course! I deconstructed the classic 80's 'disco drink' and rebuilt it to be stronger (50ml Jack), switched the orange liqueur (triple sec) for an orange amaro (Amer Picon) & included more lemon than a simple squeeze of a wedge. With the Spritz craze still going strong in the UK and people are more accepting of Amaros and bitter flavours. This is a great aperitif."

Cam Dawson, 2023
