How you doin’? Many of our past presidents had apple trees on their properties. Some of those harvests must have gone to making apple spirits. In fact, many people consider Apple Jack to be one of America's great spirits.
I don’t rightly care if you’re a democrat or republican when it comes to a good President’s Day Cocktail. I learned a long time ago how to democratize a damn good cocktail. Here’s one that goes back almost 100 years. It was most popular in the 1920's and '30s. It even made an appearance in the Hemingway classic, The Sun Also Rises.
My Apple Jack Rose Cocktail is both sweet and tart and tastes so much better than the fake flavors of so many Appletinis. I predict that the Apple Jack Rose Cocktail is going to make a comeback after this publication.
The Apple Jack Rose Cocktail makes an excellent at-home signature drink to impress family and friends. Make a big batch in a pitcher and keep bringing out newly chilled glasses for refills.
2 ounces applejack (use Calvados as good substitute if applejack is unavailable)
1 ounce fresh lemon or lime juice
1/4 ounce of grenadine
ChefSecret: If you use Calvados, the drink will lose a little sweetness but you can correct that with a little simple syrup and retain the fresh apple flavor.
My Woke Quip of the Day: Why did the apple pie cry? It’s peelings were hurt!
