About the recipe

This flavorful highball cocktail is a grown-up version of the classic Southern drink, Jack and Coke. Molasses and angostura bitters hint at Coca-Cola, while your favorite bourbon (or Jack Daniels, if you'd like) provides the oomph. Top it all off with club soda and a splash of lime.
