Comment:

Described as being an "applejack sour with orgeat," we've adapted the recipe to use commercially available orgeat. If using a more artisan orgeat then you may want to use as much as 30ml/1oz orgeat and forgo the sugar and water.

There is no orange in the cocktail but it's surprising how much the orange zest twist influences this drink and adds complexity.

About:

We have Robert Hess and his The Cocktail Spirit podcast to thank for the Harvest Moon and drawing our attention to its being featured in a list of the Top 10 Most Popular Cocktails in the December 1934 edition of Esquire Magazine.
