Mixoloco - Mixology Tips:

  • Whiskey Selection: Opt for Jack Daniel's Tennessee whiskey for an authentic Lynchburg Lemonade experience. The smooth and mellow flavor profile of Jack Daniel's pairs perfectly with the citrusy elements of the cocktail.

  • Fresh Lemon Juice: Using freshly squeezed lemon juice is key to achieving the bright and vibrant flavor of the Lynchburg Lemonade. Avoid bottled lemon juice, as it may lack the freshness and acidity of freshly squeezed juice.

  • Simple Syrup Tip: If you prefer a sweeter Lynchburg Lemonade, you can adjust the amount of simple syrup to suit your taste preferences. Start with the recommended amount and adjust accordingly. It's all about customizing the cocktail to your liking.

  • Ice Quality: Use fresh, high-quality ice cubes to ensure they don't dilute the drink too quickly. Large ice cubes are preferable as they melt more slowly.
