After Colin Shearn's Vlad the Impaler, I reached for the PDT Cocktail Book and found David Slape's Persephone. David named the drink after the daughter of Zeus and the harvest-goddess Demeter who serves as the queen of the underworld in Greek mythology. The combination of sloe gin and applejack worked rather well in No. 9 Park's Slojack, so I was game to give it a try.
