The Jack Knife cocktail recipe is simply equal parts of Jack Daniels whiskey and Bailey’s Irish Cream. This might not sound like a marriage made in heaven at first, but Irish cream actually complements the flavors in good whiskey nicely.
For any snobs out there cringing to think I just called Jack Daniels “good whiskey”, get over it. You wouldn’t want to waste a wonderfully smooth, delicious single malt in a cocktail. Jack Daniels is one of the tastier whiskeys that’s still in a cocktail class. The Bailey’s tones down the throat-burning aspects of the Jack Daniels, and the JD in turn livens up the Bailey’s with considerable flavor. The Jack Knife is a very fun drink.
