Author Notes: A simple, seasonal recipe using applejack and maple syrup. The chilled glass harks back to the original distillation process for applejack during colonial times: when the weather turned cold, hard cider was left outdoors overnight. In the morning after scraping off the ice, what remained was a high proof spirit. This method of concentrating alcohol was called “jacking.”Hi, I'm Brian.
