5 Cocktails To Raise In Honor Of Lemmy Kilmister

It’s been a year since the rock world lost legendary Motörhead frontman/bassist Lemmy Kilmister, but this should not be a sad day.  (We doubt Lemmy would tolerate such a thing.)

Instead, we think you should reach for another icon:  Jack Daniel’s.  (We think Lemmy would prefer this option instead.)

While Lemmy was known for slinging Jack & Cokes on the daily to the point where after his death there was a campaign to change the drink’s name to “The Lemmy,” we thought we’d venture into some other cocktails that would also receive his seal of approval.

…And of course they ALL feature Jack Daniel’s, because once again, Lemmy wouldn’t want it any other way.

Cheers!
