Drink of the Day

January 4, 2007

This one is mentioned in a lot of Hemmingway novels. It’s also quite good.

Unfortunately, in 4.5 years in New York city, I never found a bartender who knew how to make one, and only found Applejack (not the cereal) in a grand total of one store.  Surprisingly, Laird’s Applejack is widely available throughout Chicago. Unsurprisingly, most bartenders under the age of forty are either uninterested in the profession, limited by house drinks, or most often, stupid.

2 oz. applejack

1/2 oz. lemon juice (a few drops of bitters may be to your liking, instead.)

1/4 oz. grenadine
