Review:

Apple, orange and tart lemon enriched with maple syrup. Strike the perfect balance and this is a delicious combination.

Variant:

Old Vermont

History:

The Apple Jack Rabbit appears in Harry Craddock's 1930 The Savoy Cocktail Book and in David A. Embury's 1948 The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks where he tells us "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."

THE APPLE JACK RABBIT COCKTAIL.
1 Hooker of Applejack.
The Juice of 1 Lemon.
The Juice of 1 Orange.
1 Hooker of Maple Syrup
Shake well and strain into cocktail glass.

Harry Craddock, 1930

APPLEJACK RABBIT
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.

If you like the Jack Rabbit, try substituting maple for plain sugar syrup in Sours made with other bases.

David Embury, 1948
