#ThirstyThursday: The DIY Edition (Inspired By Jack Daniels)
Although #ThirstyThursday was designed to inspire our audience to get out and have fun, we’ve realized that staying in to entertain friends and family can be just as fulfilling. Because of this, we’ve asked our friends at Jack Daniels to provide a boozy-inspired barbecue menu for you to enjoy at home. The best part? It costs less than your standard meal at a local restaurant.
For the seventh installment of #ThirstyThursday we’ve pulled one entree from PARROTHEAD SMOKERS of Dakota Dunes, South Dakota and a side dish from SWIGGIN PIG of Nashville, Tennessee. So head to the grocery store, grab some streaks; veggies;and of course, a few bottles of Jack to wash it all down.
See below for recipes….Cheers!
1 part Jack Daniel’s Old No. 7
1 part triple sec
1 part sour mix
4 parts lemon-lime soda
Combine and stir. Garnish with a lemon slice and cherry.
Marinated Round Steak
1/3rd cup Jack Daniels
1 cup Dorothy Lynch salad dressing or Russian style dressing
1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
Marinate overnight. Brush most of marinade off but not all. Season with favorite rub, Grill on high heat to medium rare. You want to caramelize the sugars in the rub quickly and produce good grill marks.
