Today’s drink of the day is the Jack Perry. It’s a simple drink, so I won’t describe it much — except to point out that perry is the traditional word for the sparkling pear wine that is sometimes called “pear cider” (even though the name ‘cider’ traditionally only means sparkling apple wine). I am sure none of my readers need it pointed out that in traditional American drink terms, ‘jack’ means applejack — a general term for American apple brandy, straight or blended. So, here is the drink image. Click on it if you want to expand it for easier reading. Happy drinking!
