Lynchburg Lemonade

It's time for another installment of Thirsty Thursday posts!  This week I'm bringing you a drink called Lynchburg Lemonade.  It's sweet and tart, can be made in large quantities and served in a pitcher, and goes down a bit too easily.

I found this recipe on Food & Wine's website.

You'll need:

1 cup sugar
1 cup water
1/2 cup pineapple juice
1/2 cup orange juice
2 1/2 cups lemon juice
2 cups Jack Daniel's
2 lemons, cut into thick slices, for garnish
sprigs of mint, for garnish

Combine the sugar and water in a saucepan over medium-high heat.  Stir occasionally, until it boils.  Let it boil for a minute or two, then take it off the heat and set aside to cool.  Now you have simple syrup.

In a pitcher, combine the pineapple, orange, and lemon juice, with the Jack Daniel's.  Once the simple syrup is cool, add it to the mixture.  Stir to combine.

Pour into glasses over ice.  Garnish with lemon slices (I forgot them here) and mint.  Enjoy!  Preferably with good company.
