The Forner Corners was created by Brandon Bramhall at the Nashville Tennessee outpost of NYC’s cult favourite spot, Attaboy in 2017. The cocktail prominently features applejack, an American spirit originally created by “jacking” fermented apple cider by freezing the liquid and then removing the ice, thus raising the alcohol content.
Applejack was said to be a favourite of many American presidents including Washington, Roosevelt and Lincoln, who even served the spirit during his tenure as as a bar owner in New Salem.
The Four Corners perfectly balances the Applejack’s slightly smokey Apple notes with the herbal bitter-sweetness of Aperol and the full bodied orange tang of the Cointreau. A modern cocktail that would have been good enough for Washington himself!
