Friday night cocktail by MermaidMary

There is a Rib Joint Pop up happening at the Elephant Wrestler Pub in Takapuna every Sunday from now until the end of July in collaboration with Jack Daniels. Slow cooked ribs, bluegrass music and southern style cocktails from Jack Daniels. 

This bourbon cocktail is named after the home of the Jack Daniels Distillery in Lynchburg Tennessee, the Lynchburg Lemonade is the perfect thirst quencher on those warm afternoons. It is also perfect as an accompaniment with southern styled BBQ treats,

30 mls Cointreau
30mls Sour Lemon Mix - Combo of simple sugar syrup & lemon/lime juice, there are also premixes that can be bought

Put on your cowboy boots & enjoy!
