Lynchburg Lemonade Recipe

Named after the home of the Jack Daniel’s distillery in Lynchburg, Tennessee, the Lynchburg Lemonade is a refreshing alcoholic beverage. Its history, on the other hand, is a bit odd. The cocktail was supposedly invented in 1980 by Tony Mason, an Alabama bar owner. The story goes that somehow Jack Daniel’s got their hands on the recipe and launched a campaign with the drink a year later. Then in 1987 they went to court, which ultimately ruled in favor of Mason, but he didn’t receive any  monetary compensation. Irregardless of where the drink came from, however, it always manages to taste great on a hot afternoon.
