Laird’s Applejack is an inimitable apple brandy we like to reach for once fall rolls around. Here we use it to make some sours for an all-time best Thanksgiving pregame. They’ve got the apple, citrus, maple, and baking spice notes of the season with enough refreshment and punch to chill any remarks from combative relatives.
- Makes 1
- 2 oz. applejack (preferably Laird’s)
- ¾ oz. fresh lemon juice
- ½ oz. fresh orange juice
- ½ oz. pure maple syrup
- 2 dashes of Angostura bitters
- Freshly grated nutmeg
- Combine applejack, lemon juice, orange juice, maple syrup, and bitters in a cocktail shaker. Add ice and shake until the outside of the shaker is frosty, about 20 seconds.
- Strain cocktail into an ice-filled rocks glass and sprinkle with nutmeg.
