Have you tried Laird’s AppleJack blend before? Me either. But I’ve been wanting to try it. This is not a sponsored post.
This is a fun read on the history of Laird’s AppleJack blend!
According to AppleJack, it differs from straight apple brandy. AppleJack has a 35% base of apple brandy but with a unique smoothness and a deeper and richer flavor than other whiskeys!
I’ve been wanting to use this liquor for the longest time. But I wasn’t able to find it at the mom & pop liquor store I frequent. I asked for it a few times because I thought I was just overlooking it but each time I was told they didn’t have it.
Perhaps my repeat questions irritated them or perhaps they took pity on me. In any case, I finally found it on their shelves! Yahoo!
How to mix the Pink Lady cocktail
The ingredients: AppleJack liquor, gin, a lemon, an egg and grenadine
Keep your cocktail shaker dry, since you are going to add egg whites. You add the ice after shaking the ingredients with the egg whites.
Pour each ingredient in the cocktail shaker after measuring it out.
Process shots of the PLC:
- 2 ounces of AppleJack liquor
- 3/4 ounce gin
- 3/4 ounce of freshly squeezed lemon juice. While you are dealing with the lemon, cut a strip of lemon rind for the twist garnish
- 1/2 ounce of grenadine
- One egg white
Cap the cocktail shaker and shake it for at least 30 seconds. Just a warning: shaking will cause the contents to pressurize. Make sure you hold the top tightly.
I add a few cubes into the cocktail shaker and shake it for another 15 seconds.
Strain contents of the shaker into a coupe glass. Place the lemon twist on the side of the glass.
