Jack Rose

Jack Rose applejack and lemon juice cocktail

There’s a lot of debate on the story behind this drink’s name: who it could be, what it could mean, and so on. The most likely story is that it wasn’t named for anyone or anything, but was just a combo of the “jack” in applejack and the rose color. Since the rose color comes from just a splash of grenadine, you could put your own twist on it by substituting nearly any sweet red liqueur. We’ve included those variations in our recipe.
