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 color by substituting cherry brandy, crème de noyaux, Chambord, or any other red liqueur for the grenadine.
