Applejack Cocktail

Applejack Cocktail:
  • 1 1/2 oz. Applejack
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. grenadine
Shake and strain into 3 oz. Cocktail glass. Garnish with lemon twist.

Two points: one, which I may have made in an earlier post, is that when you're doing a lemon twist, do it over the glass so you get the essential oils to spray over the drink. You get all of the functionality out of the twist, in addition to the pretty garnish. Second, Applejack. I had no idea what Applejack was, but our good friends at Wikipedia inform me that it is distilled from apple cider. Whatever it is, it is delicious.

This cocktail is nice, sweet, light, and fruity. It barely tastes like alcohol, which is dangerous. But it is quite delicious. The apple and the sourness from the lemon cutting the sweetness of the grenadine balance out perfectly to make a tasty drink. It's on the list.
