Vandaag's New Amsterdam Toddy

Serious Eats Carey Jones Post a comment

"The problem with most cider drinks is that they just hang around on a hot plate all day," says Smith-Mattsson, "so the flavors get too concentrated." Here, he allows Laird's Bonded Applejack "to do most of the work," delivering powerful apple flavor and the fruit's crisp acidity without that all-too-familiar boiled-down sweetness. More

Serious Eats The Serious Eats Team Post a comment

Smooth Dolin vermouth and sloe gin (Plymouth's is made with a high-proof infusion of real sloeberries) are offset by fresh lemon juice in this rich and fruity (but not over sweet) cocktail from David Slape, featured in The PDT Cocktail Book. More

Plum Spiced Hard Cider

Serious Eats Kelly Carámbula 2 comments

The syrup is rich with flavor—it's got a bright juiciness from the plums, sweet notes from the syrup and honey, and bold spices from the cinnamon and anise. Since it's fairly complex, I paired it with hard cider which is effervescent with a tanginess that balances the syrup's sweetness. The addition of a little applejack helps to support the apple flavor and adds depth to the cocktail. More

Pink Lady

Serious Eats Paul Clarke 4 comments

The Pink Lady is built on a foundation of gin, with lemon juice for tartness and egg white for body, along with a note of grenadine to both sweeten and color the drink. But the Pink Lady needs additional fortification, and that's where a mild dose of applejack comes in; this lends more depth and backbone to the drink, and makes it about as unassuming as the brick that file clerk is packing around in her purse. More

Time for a Drink: Applejack Rabbit

Serious Eats Paul Clarke 1 comment

The Applejack Rabbit dates to at least the 1930s, and early recipes produced drinks that were teeth-grindingly sweet. This tweak on the recipe comes from one of the more influential books in the mixological canon, David Embury's The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks, which is now back in print after a nearly 50-year absence from the shelves. Combining the fruity depths of applejack with fresh orange and lemon juice and sweetening the mix with the richness of maple, the Applejack Rabbit combines some of the best of the season's flavors.

Time for a Drink: Marconi Wireless

Serious Eats Paul Clarke 4 comments
