Writer at the Bar: Jack Rose

This is, hands down, my favorite drink. I love it not only for its vibrant pink color and smooth flavor, but because it’s a drink with true style. This recipe is featured in "Mix Shake Stir" by Danny Meyer – which is full of amazing drink recipes. According to the book, the Jack Rose was a favorite of Hemingway and Bogart. And when you taste it, you’ll see why. Plus, the drink uses Laird’s Apple Jack, which is a delicious apple brandy from New Jersey that has been around since colonial times. Very stylish indeed.

2 ounces of Laird’s Apple Jack
1 ounce of fresh lime juice
1 ounce of Grenadine

Measure out all ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake until icy cold. Strain into martini glass, drink, and think about your next Great American Novel.
