  • The drink is great. It wasn't too boozy or too sweet. I used Plymouth Navy Strength, Laird's Bonded apple brandy, and homemade grenadine. Will make again!
  • Used Laird's Applejack. A touch sweet, but delicious. Like drinking a fresh cut apple. The gin just comes in on the background and gives a nice body to the drink. (I used beefeater).
  • Good - a bit sweet. Maybe lower grenadine or use homemade grenadine (used store). Used MOBO Apple Brandy 95P w/ Kirkland gin. — ★★★★
  • Refreshing.
  • With Laird's 100°, a bit boozy, but tasty. — ★★★★

I keep coming back to this one as we transition into fall. So good! I cut the grenadine to 1/2 and I think it's improved, for my taste.
