Normally on Thursdays we have Thrifty Thursday over on Instagram. I post pictures of items I find in thrift stores and ask questions like, “How much is this worth?” or “Would you buy it?” But today I had a last minute change of plans, so instead we’re having THIRSTY Thursday! Hopefully next week THRIFTY Thursday will be back in full swing. (Be sure to follow me on Instagram to join in the fun. @ BelleAntiquarian)
One of the ingredients for this cocktail is sold at Publix Grocery Stores, which I understand is regional and not nationwide. But you can easily swap it out for OceanSpray Cranberry Juice Cocktail with Lime. It won’t be exactly the same because the juice we use from Publix does have a “spiced” flavor. In addition, the Jack Daniels “Winter Jack Tennessee Cider” is seasonal. You can usually find it after Halloween. If you haven’t had the Winter Jack before, the bottle says it’s a seasonal blend of apple liqueur and Tennessee whiskey. The alcohol percentage in the Winter Jack is much lower than original Jack Daniels, and their website suggests drinking it warm. But today, this cocktail uses it cold.
