3 easy-to-make whiskey cocktails for the inevitable night-in you're having

Happy Saturday.

You enjoying your night in? Of course you are. Sure, where else would you be?

No need to get down about it though, because you can still have a swell ol' time in your gaff, with max six people, social distancing, while whipping up some tasty whiskey cocktails with minimal ingredients.

Jack Daniel's have recently announced their latest drinks offering, Jack Daniel's Tennessee Apple, so in order to celebrate, we've delved deep into their mixed drinks offerings and found three of the tastiest (and easiest!) whiskey cocktails.

Enjoy them, yeah? In moderation, obviously.
