Hanging With Jack... Daniels

By Fashiontofood @FashiontoFood
PhotobucketAnother Friday (TGIF) has arrived and it's already the second day of December (TGID). After a very busy November filled with major celebrations to fete the wonderful people in our life, both Hungry Husband and I are ready to settle into cozy, snowy, lazy December weekends. (Actually, the snow can hold out a bit longer.) My idea of a lazy weekend is a true cliche. Lounging around in PJ's with endless cups of coffee, a sunshine filled room with large cozy couches and a fireplace. Even my activities are predictable. Reading a book, listening to soft music, or dare I say, perusing online... (aka reading gossip magazines). Maybe a glass of wine or a shot of Bailey's with the passing hours... But, I never ever thought of incorporating Jack Daniels into this perfect equation...
In case you couldn't visualize what I was describing, this is what I'm talking about.
Hanging With Jack... Daniels
Let me add a new spin to your lazy weekend. How about Honey Jack Daniels? Oh yes. Sure, whiskey has never been my cup of tea ... at all. But this Honey Whiskey business is something that I can get used to. Hungry Husband has not been able to stop talking about it ever since he had a drink at his cousin's birthday party (he insisted that I do a post about it) and ever since then, it has become a staple at our parties. How can you not love it when you can make a drink called, "Honey Nut Cheerios..." uh huh! If that doesn't sound delicious to you, then you don't know Jack!  Hanging With Jack... Daniels
