Odd MacIntosh - Jason "Booze Hound" Wilson used to write a spirits column for the Washington Post.  This one is from his column on May 30, 2007.

 

3/4 oz. Lillet Blanc

3/4 oz. Cointreau

3/4 oz. applejack (Laird's 100 proof in our house)

3/4 oz. fresh lemon juice

orange slice for garnish.

 

Stir ingredients (except for orange slice) with ice - don't shake or gets gets watery.

Strain into martini glass and add garnish.   

 

Thanks for the blast from the past. Sounds yummy.

We had it last night - was looking for recipes that use Lillet Blanc, and this was in our collection.  It went well as a pre-dinner cocktail (grilled salmon steaks) on a really hot day.

 

Only another 2 inches of Lillet to go before I get a new bottle.;)

Sometimes I reflect that, as a die-hard bourbon and whisky fan, I often overlook the mixed drinks. And yet as a bourbon drinker nothing goes down easier on a hot day than a good mint julep made with decent bourbon. :)

I rocked it this week, and now it's time to unwind with a Sazerac.  Happy Friday!
