A tasty applejack sour, the Jack Rose is one of those popular cocktails from the 1920's and 30's. Its named is likely derived from the jack of the applejack and the light rose coloring from the grenadine. You can adjust the flavor slightly without disturbing the Jack Rose's lovely color by substituting cherry brandy, crème de noyaux, Chambord, or any other red liqueur for the grenadine.

What You'll Need

  • 2 1/2 ounces applejack
  • 3/4 ounce lemon juice (fresh)
  • Grenadine to taste

How to Make It

  1. Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice.
  2. Shake well.
  3. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
  4. Garnish with the lemon twist.
