The drink: Applejack
The bar: No. 7, 7 Greene Avenue, Brooklyn
The price: $12
The ingredients: Applejack, grappa, Cognac, and essence of violet, served in a rocks glass.
The buzz: No. 7’s spring cocktail list is inspired by flowers. The Applejack cocktail packs a serious punch (hello, Applejack, grappa and Cognac?), but is terribly sneaky about it. The dominant violet makes you feel like you’re sipping an elixir of pretty petals rather than a triple-booze knockout. Cue the singing birds fluttering around your spinning head.
