Star Cocktail Recipe

There’s nothing better than a cocktail made with apple brandy. George J. published a recipe to accompany the recipe in its print edition. From Kappeller’s “Modern American Drinks” from 1895. If you’re a metropolitan fan, this cocktail gives you a similar taste experience with apple brandy as the base spirit. The sweetness of the sweet vermouth balances the brandy quite well. However, the ingredients are poured at equal amounts, so we start from a different base for this recipe. While this beverage is equally as delicious, it uses a slightly different twist on bitters and syrup.
