3/4 oz Lemon Juice
3/4 oz Orange Juice
1/2 oz Maple Syrup (Merton's Farm, VT)
1 dash Angostura Bitters
Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass; I added a lemon twist.
After researching the Applejack Rabbit, two Saturdays ago I decided to make a variation I discovered called the Old Vermont that David Embury mentioned in his The Art of Mixing Drinks. Instead of the applejack in the better known classic, the Old Vermont called for gin and bitters. Embury recommended a 6:1:1:1 ratio, but I opted for the PDT Cocktail Book's structure for the Applejack Rabbit that worked well a week before.
