How did it begin? Legend has it, back in the 1940s, friends Jackie Gleason and Frank Sinatra were sitting together at a Manhattan bar. Frank was sharing his troubles with Gleason – some say it was trouble with a woman – and he wanted a “serious” drink. It’s said Gleason turned to Sinatra and said – “Jack Daniel’s! That’s a good place to start.”
From that night forward, and for the next 50 years , Frank and Jack would be fast companions, traveling the world. He always had a glass of Jack Daniel’s on stage with him and a stash on his private plane.
It’s widely known that when Frank departed this world he was buried with a roll of dimes, a package of Camel cigarettes and a bottle of Jack Daniel’s.
How Sinatra drank his Jack Daniel’s- Always three or four ice cubes, two fingers of Jack Daniel’s, a splash of water, in a traditional rocks glass.
