2 ounces Laird’s Applejack
3/4 ounce grenadine, preferably homemade
3/4 ounces fresh squeezed juice from 1 lemon
1 dash Peychaud’s bitters
Combine applejack, grenadine, lemon juice, and bitters in a cocktail shaker. Fill shaker with ice and shake vigorously until well chilled, about 15 seconds. Strain into a chilled coupe or martini glass. Squeeze lemon twist over surface of drink, skin-side-out to release fragrant oils. Rub rim of glass with skin side of lemon twist and discard twist. Serve immediately.
