On Friday night as I was making dinner, we were in the mood for something warm to take the evening's chill off. Since Pioneers of Mixing at Elite Bars: 1903-1933 is a repository of quirky drinks both hot and cold, I found my answer there -- the Hot Jersey Shrub (it was just listed as "Jersey (Hot)" under the Shrubs category, so the drink name parsing is mine). The Jersey part of the name most likely refers to the apple spirit base of the drink. Besides most of the applejack in this country being made in New Jersey, the state was known for using the spirit (a/k/a "Jersey Lightning") as currency to pay for road construction during colonial times. The book defined a Shrub as "same as a Sangaree only a round slice of lemon in glass" and a hot Sangaree as sugar, liquor, and hot water. A mere garnish separated the two by their somewhat unique definitions.
