Jack Rose

History of the Jack Rose cocktail.

The Jack Rose is a classic cocktail made with applejack, lemon juice, and grenadine. It is believed to have originated in the early 20th century, with some sources tracing its creation back to the pre-Prohibition era. The drink is named after “Bald Jack” Rose, a notorious New York gambler who was a friend of author and cocktail enthusiast Ernest Hemingway.

The Jack Rose was a popular drink during the Prohibition era, as applejack was one of the few spirits that was still legal to produce in the United States. Today, the Jack Rose is a classic cocktail that is enjoyed by many, with variations that include the addition of other ingredients like bitters or egg white.
