About this Cocktail

Manhattan-like proportions but with Applejack. This simple but delicious cocktail was created by the Waldorf Astoria Hotel near the turn of the century, who named it for the famous radio inventor. I've featured it on my blog at

  • 1.75 oz applejack
  • 3/4 oz sweet vermouth
  • 2 dashes orange bitters

Add ingredients to a mixing glass, fill with ice, stir and strain into a cocktail glass.

    now this is a 9am cocktail!

    Definitely a 9am cocktail, but I would say the proportions are just like a Manhattan, more so than a martini.
  • Bitter Chris
    Fair enough on the manhattan proportions. I just picked up a bottle of Laird's 12-year and am thinking about trying to sub that in for the applejack.
