Unusually, maple syrup sits with gin in this sour from yesteryear. It sits surprisingly well.
A vintage cocktail referenced under the entry for the Apple Jack Rabbit Cocktail in David Embury's 1948 The Fine Art Of Mixing Drinks.
APPLEJACK RABBITDavid Embury, 1948
1 part Maple Syrup
1 part Lemon Juice
1 part Orange Juice
6 parts Apple Brandy
Shake with cracked ice.
Apple sugar may be used in place of maple syrup but has the same disadvantage that ordinary dry sugar has compared with a sugar syrup.
This drink is also sometimes, for no reason at all, called the Applejack Dynamite. The same cocktail made with a gin base plus a dash of Angostura is called the Old Vermont.
