More commonly known as "Applejack", it is re-distilled cider (or hard cider, in the U.S.).

The process raises it's alchoholic content.

The name Jersey Lightning comes from colonial times, in which road workers in New Jersey would be paid in applejack.

applejack, a brandy made by distilling hard apple cider (from the fact that the distilleries that produce it are in New Jersey)
a shot of Jersey lightning, let alone plain old brandy, is enough to make me sick.
