Exactly what it says it is, this drink should be far from a mystery. But I did promise autumn cocktails and Laird’s Applejack is about as fall-like as a spirit can get. I love Applejack. It tastes strong as it goes down and leaves an apple finish in your mouth that will leave you smiling. Just consider this as a lovely October substitute for your regular old fashioned cocktail.
Here we go –
- 1 sugar cube (yes, I still prefer the cube over simple syrup with an old fashioned)
- 3 dashes Angostura bitters
- 2 oz Applejack
In a rocks or double old fashioned glass, place sugar cube and splash it with a couple shakes of your bitters. Muddle ‘til muddy and add ice. Pour Applejack and garnish with a long, fat orange peel. Walk around your backyard with this drink while wearing your tweed hat.
