Apple Jack (Special) Cocktail
2/3 Applejack. (2 oz Laird’s Bonded Apple Brandy)
1/6 Grenadine. (1/2 oz home made Grenadine*)
1/6 Lemon Juice. (1/2 oz Lemon Juice)
Shake well and strain into cocktail glass.
The Apple Jack (Special) Cocktail almost falls within what I would call “free pour error” of the nominally drier Jack Rose (in the Savoy the Jack Rose is: Juice of 1/2 lemon or whole lime, 1/4 Grenadine, 3/4 Apple Jack). Tasty stuff. Homemade Grenadine, fresh lemon juice, and the Bonded Apple Jack make a world of difference in this cocktail. Yum.
*1 Cup Pomegranate Juice (Knudsen Just Pomegranate)
1 Cup Sugar
1/4 Cup Pomegranate Concentrate
1/4 Cup Vodka
Combine sugar with juice and shake until dissolved. Add Pomegranate Concentrate and Vodka.
This post is one in a series documenting my ongoing effort to make all of the cocktails in the Savoy Cocktail Book, starting at the first, Abbey, and ending at the last, Zed.
