Jack Rose

Apples are a common theme in North Woods by Daniel Mason. My cocktail for the podcast was a Jack Rose using Laird's AppleJack (apple brandy). AppleJack is one of America's oldest distilled drinks... first made in 1698. The Jack Rose was a prohibition-era drink that was a favorite of John Steinbeck.  Recipe below:


1.5 ounces AppleJack or apple brandy
3/4 ounce fresh lemon juice
1/2 ounce grenadine

Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a coupe glass.
