Apple Knocker

What a silly sounding name for a cocktail. I can only surmise that the knocking that goes on is in your head when the apple brandy reaches your brain--this recipe callso for three ounces of the stuff. Despite the fact that not much of the rest of this cocktail contains any apples, the name and the apple brandy (I used Laird's Applejack 86, which is an apple brandy) suggest the flavor of apples nonetheless. Perhaps it's the caramel in the sweet vermouth, but I felt like this was a candy apple of a drink.

  • 3 oz. apple brandy (Applejack 86 used)
  • 1/2 oz. sweet vermouth (Cocchi di Torino used)
  • 4 oz. orange juice
  • 1/2 oz. sugar syrup
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice

Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and pour into a chilled Collins glass.
