Many years ago, former New York-based bartender Daniel Delson created a special drink in honor of Martin Luther King Jr.
The master mixologist sips on the beverage known as King Cola to this day, and says the cocktail is perfect for celebrating Kings historic legacy.
King Cola blends Coca-Cola, Jim Beam, Chambord, and a cherry garnish together for a sweet treat.
Delson says its a more flavorful take on a regular Jack and Coke and the sweetness gives the drink a special southern charm.
Since the ingredients are simple and can be found anywhere in the country, the drink is accessible and can be enjoyed by all, just like MLK wouldve wanted.
Says Delson: Its a unifying drink that brings people together because its not an acquired taste.
