Jack Daniel's Lynchburg Lemonade is named after Lynchburg, Tennessee, the home of the famous whiskey distillery. The drink is one part Jack Daniels, one part tripel sec, one part sour mix, and one part lemon-lime soda. It is normally served over ice and garnished with either a cherry or lemon.
The drink was originally created, however, by an Alabama restaurant and lounge owner in 1980 by the name of Tony Mason. Mason claimed that a Jack Daniel's sales representative came into his restaurant, tried the drink, and learned the recipe. A year later, the distillery launched a nation-wide campaign promoting the drink. Mason subsequently filed a lawsuit—Mason v. Jack Daniel Distillery. Although the final disposition of the case is unknown, the case went all the way to the Alabama civil appellate court.
