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.

This recipe was featured as part of our Best Picture Cocktails story.

Instructions

Fill a chilled collins glass with ice. Add lemon juice, Cointreau or Triple Sec, whiskey, and beer and stir until combined. Garnish with lemon slice or peel.
