Hawaiian Room

  • SERVINGS: Makes 1 drink

According to Jeff Berry, this drink was served in New York City in the 1940s at the Hotel Lexington's Hawaiian Room. It's the only tropical cocktail Berry has encountered that uses applejack (American Apple brandy). Berry prefers Laird's Applejack, which the Laird family has been making in New Jersey since 1698.
