sober grammar is better

Well, not 2017 anymore, time to make a new thread?

 

Tonight I tried Marcus Samuelsson's Big Apple Sidecar but subbed the Applejack with Osocalis (which I got on sale) and Morey Orange Liquer (recommended by staff) instead of Cointreau.

Original recipe is as follows:

  • 2 ounces applejack brandy
  • 1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 ounce Cointreau, or Grand Marnier
  • 1/4 ounce agave nectar, maple syrup or honey.

I've never had Applejack, I've only had Calvados, and the Osocalis is much like Calvados. It has an overwhelming apple scent, not a bad thing. When mixed with the Morey, which is not as sweet as Triple Sec, it created a very complex flavor, not entirely pleasant. I'm a simple girl, I like simple flavors. But dang, did it go down smooth. :-)

 

I'm new to cocktails (new to making, I've sure drank enough) and I'm still learning. I won't repeat this, it seems a waste of Osocalis. And I know DeKruper is looked down upon here, but I've used DeKruper Triple Sec for years, and its simple, sweet taste would be more in line with apple brandy, just my opinion, I know that's a jailable offense in some places. And no, I did NOT mix my Osocalis with Triple Sec, but honestly, it may have tasted better. Next time (if there is a next time), I'll leave the Morey out completely and double the agave nectar. That way the different liquors won't have to compete with each other.
