The Jackhammer makes Friday nights after work very simple: ice, Jack Daniels and amaretto to smooth out the Jack. That’s all there is to this drink, and it gets the job done.

Jackhammer drink on white table

This drink is a great choice for unwinding after a rough day and taking the edge off. It has the kick of a whiskey shot without so much of the burn. The amaretto adds a nice bitter flavor to the more sweet notes of the whiskey.


Fill an old-fashioned glass with ice. Pour in the Jack Daniels, followed by the amaretto. Serve with a stir straw.
