Ingredients (6)

  • Large ice cubes
  • 1/2 ounce (1 tablespoon) lemon juice
  • 1 ounce Cointreau or Triple Sec
  • 1 1/2 ounces Tennessee whiskey, such as Jack Daniel’s
  • 2 ounces light beer, such as Corona
  • 1 slice of lemon or lemon peel, for garnish


In honor of the Baltimore Ravens football player from Tennessee and the family that transformed his life (as depicted in the 2010 Oscar-nominated film The Blind Side), we concocted the Tennessee Tea(m). This drink is based on a Tennessee Tea, usually made with Jack Daniel’s whiskey, Triple Sec, sweet-and-sour mix, and Coke. In this version, we substituted lemon juice for the sweet-and-sour mix and beer for the Coke—an unlikely marriage that works.
