Harvest Moon

The December 1934 edition of Esquire Magazine includes a list of the “Top 10” most popular cocktails. The list starts with an Old Fashioned, and ends with a Daiquiri. The rest of the drinks on the list are reasonably well known. One of them, The Harvest Moon, appears to be MIA for most bartenders. It is described as being a “applejack sour with orgeat”.

Harvest Moon
1 1/2 ounces applejack
1/2 ounce lime juice
1/2 ounce orgeat
Shake with ice. Strain into a cocktail glass.
This drink obviously predates 1934, but when/where I am not sure. I reverse engineered this recipe based on the comment that it was an "applejack sour with orgeat". I'm still looking for an "original" recipe.
Please remember to drink safely and responsibly.
