I bought Apple Jack to make Jack Roses with when I was first treking through the classic cocktail world. I was very underwhelmed, and then I discovered that subbing a calvados in all the recipes calling for Apple Jack actually makes them good.

Won't pass up a bottle of Laird's Bonded though.

applejack's good stuff, but definitely has a more whiskey-like profile than a calvados.

i like it esp. in a suffering bastard, 1 oz each of applejack, gin, and bourbon...

I've used Lairds Applejack for years. It's great added to hot apple cider in winter and served with a cinnamon stick. It's also great to add 2 tablespoons to a pumpkin pie recipe. I love Applejack, but never heard of it in a Zombie before. None of the Zombies in Remixed have Applejack in them. That must have been one of the recipes the bum omitted in Remixed. He omitted the ones that weren't up to par, were almost duplicates or didn't make sense.

Lairds is expensive in the UK ($50 a bottle?), I got a half bottle from the US. I've infused apple in bourbon based on reading Lairds is the same (it's similar but it aint!).

I use the half bottle on special occasions. I think this is one:

Laird's Applejack is 1/3 apple brandy and 2/3 neutral grain spirits. That's why it has such a light flavor.

I suppose you could try making your own. Add some vodka or "white whiskey" to some Calvados.

Or you can "jack" some hard apple cider. (Jacking is a form of distillation involving freezing the liquid and scraping off the ice.)

Of course, you might go blind... Any takers?

Another recipe from Grog Log if anyone was interested in using up their Applejack.

1/2 oz fresh lemon juice
1/2 oz pineapple juice
1/2 oz Applejack
1/2 oz triple sec
1 oz light Puerto Rican rum

Recipe from the Hawaiian Room of the Hotel Lexington in New York City, circa 1940s.
