A perfect drink for the end of summer, an Applejack was originally called a “Jersey Lightening” This was used to pay off workers in colonial New Jersey who built city roads. This refreshing apple cooler calls for sugar, bitters, and club soda to be mixed well together and added to ice with Laird’s Applejack poured on top. Garnish with your favorite apple slice.
An Americano was originally a popular drink with American tourists in Italy during Prohibition. Enjoy this cocktail made with Vermouth and Campari.
Missouri politician “Colonel Joe” Rickey invented this cocktail in the muggy summer of 1883 in Washington, D.C. This is the perfect drink to sip on those hot summer nights. Dry Gin, lemon juice and soda, make up this traditional and refreshing cocktail.
