This drink dates back to the early 1900s and it is one of those drinks that everyone and their mother claimed they invented. The name for it most likely came from the fact that it was pink and made with apple brandy, the most common brand of apple brandy in the United States being Laird’s AppleJack.
Others however say it was named after a gangster from that time period. Think of this as a slightly sweeter and pink version of a Sidecar.
