About this Cocktail

Y'all, like so many before me, I've started a cocktail blog. I'm now over at http://homebargirl.com. Woo! If you would like to read sassy comments about all the things in my Home Bar, check the My Home Bar Page.

The name of this drink is taken from a song in the 1948 Disney short "Johnny Appleseed". I loved this cartoon as a child and when I took a sip of this drink, "Johnny Appleseed" and this song came rushing back to me.

    Digging the blog! The name reminded me of The Grasshopper and the Ant's "The World Owes me a Living" for some reason, and these two drinks inspired me to go buy some applejack. Thanks!
