Jackson McCrea Free Spirit Cocktail

The "Free Spirit" is the perfect libation in celebration of Juneteenth and Pride Month. It's a tribute to the resilience, creativity, and enduring spirit of African American people. It also honors the bold beauty and courage of our LGBTQIA+ community. Raise your glass!

Jackson McCrea Free Spirit


2 oz Jackson McCrea Rye Whiskey

1 oz Sorghum Syrup (or molasses syrup as a substitute)

0.5 oz Fresh Lemon Juice

2 dashes Angostura Bitters

Club Soda


Lemon twist or a slice of candied ginger for garnish


Fill your glass with ice to chill it, while you prepare the cocktail.

In a cocktail shaker, combine the Jackson McCrea Rye Whiskey, sorghum or molasses syrup, fresh lemon juice, and Angostura bitters.

Fill the shaker with ice and shake well until the mixture is chilled.

Remove ice from your chilled glass

Strain the whiskey mixture into your glass

Top off with club soda, gently stir to combine.

Garnish with a lemon twist or a slice of candied ginger for a touch of sweetness and spice. Optional: As you can see in the photo, we toppped our cocktail with a little fresh lavender.
