The Jack & Coke has taken a drubbing over the years. We got a kick out of reading the Wikipedia page for the drink, which held nothing back.
We'll post the whole excerpt here for your reading pleasure: "The drink is considered low-brow cultural fare and tends to be frowned upon by whiskey aficionados; it is generally not featured on the menus of fine dining restaurants, and some upmarket establishments may refuse to serve it or suggest alternatives if it is requested."
Say what you will about the Jack & Coke, but we are not so pretentious as to label it "low-brow". If done right, it can be a great drink.
And with this recipe, you can make a proper Jack & Coke. We almost want to call it the High-Brow Jack & Coke.
