Try the Knot and cider I know that it is good. The liquor is irish and 100 proof from the wood.
don't sip it or suckel, gulp it down like it should.

Not every person can distill 40 proof cider in their basement, so they have to settle for next best.

Yea Its a Hard Cider with Jameson Irish Whiskey

As I understand it, historically Johnny Jump Up was a cider with extra kick because the barrels that were used for whiskey were reused later for cider. The whiskey would soak into the oak of the barrels, then permeate the cider while it was fermenting. So to accurately recreate it, a hard cider with an Irish whiskey would be the way to go.

Magners hard cider with 1 shot of Jameson is how we do it!

so where can you get a truly athentic johnny jump up

By Herman Gershman on November 2nd, 2008 at 01:04:59

A true Johnny Jump Up is made by fermenting cider to ~20% ABV. You have to add some sugar to be able to reach that, but it's well worth it.

Adding distilled beverages to plain hard cider is the sissy's way. Upon mixing such a beverage, you will spontaneously grow a complete set of female reproductive organs.

On International Talk like a Pirate Day, I added some Captain Morgan to Strongbow instead of the Jameson I usually add. Both are delicious.

I think you are wrapped up too much in branding and should drink it the way you like and let others drink it as they like.

I am sorry, but this is wrong. The only true way to make a Johnny Jump Up is with Magners hard cider and Jameson whiskey. A dry cider and irish whiskey is key to this drink.
