Moderated this to reflect the Savoy Cocktail Book, replacing applejack (which is GNS + apple brandy) with the correct ingredient, apple brandy or Calvados.

Thanks,

And I reduced the overall size from 4 oz to 3 oz, which is probably still big for Savoy, but about average today.

I've always felt that this drink cries out for bitters or anything to give it some depth. Luckily, when I was served this at a bar as a bartender's choice, it was served with great enthusiasm which gave it some dimension to add to the flabby build.
