“Tennessee Sunset” at Andrew Michael Italian Kitchen 

No matter if you drink it or not, Jack Daniel's is a point of pride for Tennesseans. Shawn, the bartender at Andrew Michael Italian Kitchen, has taken this spirit and elevated it into a refreshingly bright cocktail. Combining Jack with Cointreau (a French orange liqueur) and St. Germaine (an elderflower liqueur using hand-harvested elderflower blossoms), he presents a drink with citrus and floral characteristics that don't mask the charcoal-inflected whiskey. Many times a mixologist's fallback is to pour a drink into a martini glass. However, this cocktail is presented over ice in a rocks glass with a simple yet beautiful garnish. It's just the thing to wash the day away.
