Some drink combinations are true classics. Gin and tonic. Scotch and soda. Fireball and, well just about anything. But one that would probably top the list of most people who enjoy adult beverages in Coca-Cola and Jack Daniel’s.
Jack and Coke, as it is more commonly referred to, is a drink that has stood the test of time and remained incredibly popular. Sure, Rum and Coke is another Coca-Cola inspired cocktail that almost everyone has heard of, but there is something about a Jack and Coke that elevates it just a bit over the rest.
Which is likely why Coca-Cola has chosen it as the drink that will help to launch the company into the ready made canned cocktail market, which has seen explosive growth over the last few years, mostly thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Coca-Cola and Jack Daniels will be available only in Mexico to start.
According to CNN, Coca-Cola is partnering with Brown-Forman to bring the new canned cocktail Jack and Coke to consumers everywhere. The new product will come in a version made with the Coke we all know and love as well as an option made from Coke with no sugar.
The new drink will be introduced in Mexico later this year with the plan for it to be released globally sometime in 2023. Mexico was chosen for the test run due to the fact both Coke and Jack Daniel’s are incredibly popular there and the canned cocktail market is already established in the country.
Until the new drink comes to the States, you’ll have to make your Jack and Cokes the old fashioned way. Which if we’re being honest, isn’t really all that complicated.
