Lynchburg Lemonade is a great summer drink. Unfortunately, it is also loaded with sugar (standard recipes have up to 40 grams of sugar, between the soda, the sweet and sour mix, and the orange liqueur). This recipe has three grams of carb from the lemon and lime juices. It also has fewer than half the calories of standard recipes.


  • 1 jigger (1.5 oz or 3 tablespoons) Jack Daniels whiskey
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • a few drops of orange extract
  • 1 cup diet lemon-lime soda (such as Sprite or 7up)


Pour ingredients into a glass. Add ice, and stir. Garnish with a slice of lemon.
