Star Cocktail

This must have been the "Star Cocktail" of some party. It was ridiculously good. This is pretty much an Apple Brandy Manhattan (a subset of Brandy Manhattan which I don't enjoy as much as the original.) I like how the vermouth brings out the apple flavors of the Apple Jack and makes you appreciate the spiciness of the herbs in the vermouth. Brandy cocktails usually have so few flavors other than silky smoothness that it is nice to have a mouthwattering fruity drink that tastes what you expect apple brandy to taste like.
  • 2 oz. apple brandy
  • 1 oz. sweet vermouth
  • dash bitters
  • lemon twist
Combine apple brandy and vermouth in a shaker with ice. Shake or stir and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Add bitters and lemon twist.
