Blueberry Honey Jack Daniels Old Fashioned Cocktail Recipe

So I’m back with another fabulous drink recipe. Being indoors more has definitely made me explore my hidden talents, so I tried my hand as a bartender again with this Blackberry Honey Jack Daniels Old Fashioned recipe that was approved by my household whiskey lovers. A few weeks ago, I started off with perfecting my Rose Pear Margarita recipe that was inspired by my love for florals and fruit. But this twist on an old fashioned was inspired by one of my closest friends who put me on to whiskey years back and her ability to be contrastingly creative, easygoing, and extremely blunt.

Adding Flavor TO THE JACK DANIELS OLD FASHIONED

I haven’t always liked whiskey. Actually, if I really think about it, I didn’t really dislike it either. It just wasn’t something that I drank. When I first saw someone drink whiskey, it was shots or straight up, and I am a big fan of mixed drinks and an occasional tequila shot. But once I was introduced to whiskey cocktails the flavor grew on me, and I began to even go to whiskey distilleries to try out the different types and flavors that were being made, and then I soon had the taste for whiskey. For this Jack Daniels Old Fashioned recipe, I decided to go with the Tennessee Honey whiskey because of the sweet honey flavor that is already in the spirit itself. Then to add additional flavor to bring out the sweetness of the old fashioned, I decided to add some blueberries. But, if you’re not a fan of blueberries, another option is to add blackberries which does just as amazingly. When making this cocktail balance is key.

Blackberry Honey Old Fashioned


  • Author: Iesha aka Lesh

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 Sugar Cube (or regular sugar if you don’t have cubes)
  • 23 Blueberries
  • 2 oz Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey Whiskey
  • 3/4 oz Triple Sec
  • 23 shakes of Angostura Bitters

Instructions

  1. Muddle a sugar cube and 2-3 blueberries at the bottom of your glass
  2. Place ice cube into glass over muddled ingredients
  3. Add 2-3  “shakes” of bitters
  4. Pour 2 oz whiskey over ice cube (or add more depending on your preference)
  5. Add 3/4 of Triple Sec
  6. Stir and Serve

Notes

This recipe can be altered to use a different type of fruit that pairs well with honey. We tried pears and strawberries and both added unique flavors that made the drink taste delicious.

For large square ice cubes: Prepare the ice cubes at least a day prior so that they are solid and do not melt too easily to water down the drink.
