applejack fix

2 tsp Sugar dissolved in a little water (omit)
Juice of 1/4 Lemon (3/4 oz)
3 dash Curaçao (3/8 oz Van der Hum)
4 dash Any Fruit Syrup (1/2 oz Peach Syrup)
1 jigger Applejack Brandy (2 oz Boulard VSOP Calvados)

Stir with shaved ice in a bar glass (shake with ice, strain into a rocks glass, and fill with crushed ice). Dress with fruits (lemon peel) and serve with straws.
Two Wednesdays ago, I turned to Tom Bullock's 1917 The Ideal Bartender for recipe ideas. There, I was lured in by the Applejack Fix which allow for some flexibility in the fruit syrup component. In looking through my inventory in the fridge, I spotted an old peach syrup that was still good and decided to go with it. Once prepared, the Applejack Fix shared an apple and lemon aroma with hints of orange and peach. Next, lemon joined other fruit notes on the sip, and the swallow gave forth apple, orange, and peach flavors.
