¾ cup Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey
½ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (3 lemons)
½ cup freshly squeezed lime juice (4 limes)
2/3 cup sugar syrup
Combine the whiskey, lemon juice, lime juice, and syrup. Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice and fill two-thirds full with the cocktail mixture. Shake for 30 secons and pour into glasses. Add a maraschino cherry and serve ice cold.
To make sugar syrup, combine 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of water in a small saucepan and cook over medium heat until the sugar dissolves. Chill thoroughly before using.
