Menagerie’s Three Wiser Men Plus One

One shot each of Gentleman Jack, Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel, and Jack Daniel’s Black Label. Mix, add ice if you’re kinda a sissy, drink, and follow with a shot of Winter Jack. Do not drink this on a weeknight unless you have 1.75 days off following this exquisite concoction. 3.668 days if you don’t hold yer likker well.
