The classic Jack and Coke is a classic, bar cocktail staple beloved by drinkers everywhere. It’s accessibility is ubiquitous. Unfortunately, that also lends to its simplicity, and it’s somewhat “trashy” reputation. But what if I told you, you could get a drink that hits even better, and evokes a more elegant, upper class image.
See, imagine you’re trying to impress a lady, you gotta order a drink with a more refined taste than a standard “Jack and Coke.” We can’t be drinking AMFs all the time now, can we? So if you’re a sucker for Long Island Iced Teas, but not quite ready for a Negroni, try spicing up your classic order with this simple switch. I promise you, it’ll taste 100% better and give you that elegant edge you’re so looking for.
Next time you go to order a Jack and Coke, instead order a Jameson and Coke. The smoothness of the Jame-o Irish whiskey hits 1,000 times harder and people will be like “ooooh what did he get?!? That sounds fancy.” Most bars won’t charge extra for subbing Jameson for the Jack, and aside from all the ladies thinking you have a refined palate, your tastebuds will certainly thank you.
