  • put in slightly less lemon juice — ★★★★
  • Small, but works well at this scale. Good use of Applejack. — ★★★★
  • I took a sip... then another... then another... and the drink was gone. A deceitfully tasty libation that vanishes more quickly than it can be made.
  • Accessible lemony sour with subtle apple flavors. — ★★★★★

Added suggestion for apple brandy / calvados and combined duplicate recipes.

Yum! I agree with the previous comment... this is a smooth, delicious drink that doesn't not seem "strong" in its flavor despite the amount of high-proof alcohol included. I made a double in a Collins glass and while it was a little short for the glass, it saved me the inevitable task of making another!
