  • Made with Laird's 100° apple brandy. Lovely tasting autumnal drink. — ☆☆☆☆☆
  • Very unique and interesting! I've tried a lot of cocktails that use a hefty amount of bitters, but this one really works. The rich sweetness of the orgeat balances really well with bitters, and the applejack gives it body. — ☆☆☆☆☆

Very good, though a bit sweet

Very good, though a bit sweet so I served it over ice, topped with a little club soda, and added a big sprig of mint and it was perfect for a summer afternoon . This is where the rest of my applejack will be used.
