From other users
  • used laird's bonded Apple brandy, quite good — ☆☆☆☆
  • The Benedictine adds enough gravitas so that this works well, though it's not super exciting. Reminds me of apples that have been sprinkled with lemon juice to keep them from browning. — ☆☆☆☆☆
  • Very nice. Also good with whiskey subbed for 1/2 of the apple brandy. Would like to try subbing cognac for 1/2 of the apple brandy. — ☆☆☆☆

I got this recipe from Ted

I got this recipe from Ted Haigh's book. I'm guessing the curacao got lot when I imported it from one database to the other because of the c-cedilla.
