We capped our weeklong offering of Super Bowl week cocktails with Touchdown, a punch for eight based on Laird’s Applejack. The drink was a hit and led us to build other recipes using applejack. Here’s a very straight forward mix of applejack and freshly-squeezed juice.
1 1/2 ounces applejack
1 1/2 ounces fresh orange juice
2 dashes orange bitters
Shake the ingredients vigorously in an ice-filled cocktail shaker. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with an apple slice or orange twist – your choice.
Tasting notes: Fruity aperitif with a bite. Great with appetizers.
Tomorrow: Icy Hot
