Imbibing Mr. Boston: Apple Brandy Cocktail

Apple Brandy Cocktail

First off, let me say that this is a high proof cocktail.  There’s very little to temper the brandy, but the little amount of grenadine does add just enough of a touch of sweetness to offset the alcohol.  The lemon juice adds a brightness that is refreshing as well.

I prefer the original Jack Rose cocktail ratios (4-2-1), but this will do in a pinch.  I had one yesterday after a hard day “in the office” and it hit the spot.
