Jake Barnes

Jake Barnes cocktail with apple brandy and lemon juice

This lovely libation, named for an Ernest Hemingway character who orders the very-similar Jack Rose cocktail, is the brainchild of New York bartender Natalie Jacob. It’s imperative that you use a real grenadine, made from pomegranate juice (not red corn syrup, as you often find in the US). The corn stuff will do alright, but it lends the drink a sappy cotton-candy flavor that takes away from the marvelous interplay of flavors and textures.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
