A Farnell is a cocktail made with Jack Daniel's whiskey or often with whiskey from the High West Distillery mixed with lemonade.[1] The drink is usually served in an old-fashioned glass or a Collins glass with ice, and it is considered a lighter, less sweet alternative to a lynchburg lemonade.

History[edit]

The drink was first served at the Jeremy Ranch Golf Club clubhouse in Park City, Utah, and its popularity is spreading east.

Seasonality[edit]

The Farnell is designed to primarily be a summer drink, though the warm flavors of the whiskey mixed with the thirst-quenching properties of the lemonade and garnishes led to its adoption by the Après-ski set.

Lemonade as a mixer[edit]

Lemonade is a popular mixer in many alcoholic beverages, particularly straight spirits. Lemonade is not as sweet as most sodas, which makes it less likely to interfere with the flavor of the spirit. The tartness of the lemon balances the rich flavors of the whiskey.
