Wet Bar Wednesday – Jack Rose

A month ago I wrote about the Irish Jack Rose – not surprisingly, the Irish version of a Jack Rose.  I was pleased to discover a bottle of applejack at my favorite liquor store, and decided that tonight I would try the American version of the drink.

  • 2 parts applejack
  • 1 part lemon juice
  • 1 part grenadine

Mix the ingredients together with ice or pour over ice.  I substituted sour cherry juice for the grenadine, and some recipes indicate that you can use lime juice instead of lemon juice.  I thought this was a tasty drink, appropriately with some apple undertones.  Not comparing the Irish version with the American version side by side, I imagine that the Irish version is a bit sweeter.  In any event, enjoy!
