It’s time for another installment of Thirsty Thursday posts! This week I’m bringing you a drink called Lynchburg Lemonade. It’s sweet and tart, can be made in large quantities and served in a pitcher, and goes down a bit too easily.
I found this recipe on Food & Wine’s website.
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
1/2 cup pineapple juice
1/2 cup orange juice
2 1/2 cups lemon juice
2 cups Jack Daniel’s
2 lemons, cut into thick slices, for garnish
sprigs of mint, for garnish
Combine the sugar and water in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir occasionally, until it boils. Let it boil for a minute or two, then take it off the heat and set aside to cool. Now you have simple syrup.
In a pitcher, combine the pineapple, orange, and lemon juice, with the Jack Daniel’s. Once the simple syrup is cool, add it to the mixture. Stir to combine.
