Date Night Ideas With Gentleman Jack

Going out for dinner is a nice gesture, but if you really want to show someone you care, say it with a date night in. That way, you can curate the food, music and atmosphere, and you can both enjoy a next-level Gentleman Jack cocktail without having to worry about the crowds. Now that the question of which drink to serve is solved, you can focus on a menu that's sure to impress but doesn't require you to spend all day in the kitchen preparing. We're talking dishes like a swordfish that cooks like steak for a lighter take on the romantic classic and no-fail chocolate pots de crème that makes enough leftovers they solve the question of what's for breakfast tomorrow.

This Cocktail Will Set the Mood

For the ultimate extra step, float red wine over a unique cocktail with hints of vanilla and citrus bitters. Gentleman Jack's smooth finish works perfectly with a well-aged red wine for a combination that'll leave a lasting impression.

How to Make It: Combine 2 ounces of Gentleman Jack, 1 ounce of lemon juice, ½ ounce of vanilla syrup and 2 dashes of orange bitters in a cocktail shaker. Fill with ice and shake for 5 seconds. Double-strain the mixture into a rocks glass filled with ice. Pour ½ ounce of red wine over the drink using the back of a bar spoon, then serve.

Show Off with the Perfect Table Setting

Staying at home means you have full control over creating the perfect evening that your special someone deserves. A simple table setting with touches of elegance is the way to go for a date night that feels elevated.
