Jack Rose is the name of a classic cocktail, popular in the 1920s and 1930s, containing applejack, grenadine, and lemon or lime juice. It notably appeared in a scene in Ernest Hemingway's 1926 classic, "The Sun Also Rises", in which Jake Barnes, the narrator, drinks a Jack Rose in a Paris hotel bar while awaiting the arrival of Lady Brett Ashley.

The Jack Rose is one of six basic drinks listed in David A. Embury's classic "The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks".

History

The simplest explanation of the name is the fact that it is made with applejack and is rose colored from the grenadine. Also, it is possibly named after , or even invented by, the infamous hitman Jack Rose.cite book

] Albert Stevens Crockett (Old Waldorf Bar Days, 1931) states that it is named after the pink Jacquemot (also known as Jacqueminot or Jacque) rose. It has also been posited that the Jack Rose was invented by Joseph P. Rose, a Newark, NJ restauratur, and named by him "in honor" of a defendant in a trial then being held at the courthouse in that city. (Joseph P. Rose once held the title of "World's Champion Mixologist.")

Few bars currently list the Jack Rose on their menu, one being the The Angel's Share bar in New York City's East Village, the B-Side Lounge in Cambridge, MA, Eastern Standard restaurant in Boston's Kenmore Square, "Prohibition Room" in Oklahoma City and Deep Ellum in Allston, MA. In June 2003, the Washington Post published an article entitled [http://www.washingtonpost.com/ac2/wp-dyn/A60202-2003Jun14?language=printer "Searching for Jack; Two Guys, One Drink, 60 Bars,"] that chronicled two writers' quest to find a Jack Rose in a Washington, D.C. bar. After visiting seemingly countless bars, they were unsuccessful in finding one, ultimately buying a bottle of applejack for one of the few bartenders they encountered who knew how to make one. Laird & Company are the only current producers of applejack.
