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.

The grenadine isn’t just for color; the tart, fruity flavor of real pomegranate grenadine brings out the rich apple notes in the spirit. You can also use pomegranate molasses if that’s what’s locally available; you might need to add a touch of simple syrup if yours isn’t sweet enough.

I love this app

Super practical, informative, easy to use, even inspiring for lovers of cocktails or just those curious to try a few recipes over time and keep an inventory of favorite recipes handy. Updated fairly judiciously, thankfully, so it isn’t cluttered up with unproven concoctions resulting in an overwhelmingly-sized library with too many ridiculous or middling cocktails. Attractive, welcoming, well-designed UI.
