Newton's Gravity Apple


This is a funny and sublime name for a cocktail made with applejack. I can just see it now. A physics major drinking at a bar asks for some kind of a cocktail that he can name after Issac Newton. Afterward there is some confusion among the laity as to why applejack is an important ingredient. The bartender explains that its the "gravity apple guy's drink!"

Even so, this simple cocktail suffices. I'm really enjoying Laird's Applejack 86. This is the third bottle I've purchased and I like it better than their 80-proof for its strength and flavor and I'm not sure I'll bother buying aged apple brandy again.

  • 1 1/2 oz. apple brandy (Laird's Applejack 86 used--as it is actually apple brandy)
  • 1/2 oz. curacao or triple sec (Leroux triple sec used)
  • several dashes Angostura bitters
  • apple slice (optional garnish)
Combine spirits in a mixing glass with ice. Stir and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. The apple slice is not required but it is a nice touch.
