Applejack Sour

Applejack Sour:
  • 2 oz. Applejack
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 tsp. Simple Syrup (1/2 tsp powdered sugar)
Shake well and strain into 6 oz. Sour glass. Fill with club soda and garnish with a cherry and a lemon slice.

The Sour family is another one that we'll get way more into as we progress through the book. I'm sure this is indicative of how the Old Mr. Boston book handles this drink, and it's definitely "sour." The juice of 1/2 of a lemon works out to about 3/4 oz. of juice, which in today's world would balance out with about an ounce of simple syrup to adjust it to modern palates, though with all of the club soda watering things down, it really tamed the drink and made it potable. This one worked really, really well, as we once again have the combination of applejack and lemon juice working well together.
