Liberty Cocktail

liberty cocktail

From what I hear, the Boston Tea Party wasn’t about tea at all, but a sugar tax (compounded on a molasses tax) which ultimately pushed the price of rum sky-high.

It makes sense, then, that rum (arguably the¬†most popular liquor in early U.S.¬†history) and apple (“as American as apple pie”)¬†could¬†foster some sort¬†of patriotism for¬†one¬†drinking it, right? So maybe that’s a stretch, but regardless, here’s a great simple cocktail that¬†is certainly a¬†sip of liberty:

Liberty Cocktail

  • 1 oz rum
  • 2 oz applejack
  • dash simple syrup
  • shake with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass
  • garnish with an apple slice
