THE CLASSIC JACK ROSE

Julip Made Jack Rose cocktail4 Like the Negroni, the Jack Rose is another classic cocktail, popularized in the 1920's and 1930's.  It is a refreshing and simple cocktail that you can whip together with very standard bar ingredients.  The sweetness of the grenadine is cut by the lemon juice for a delicious drink.  The cocktail also appears in one of Hemingway's master pieces, The Sun Also Rises when the main character sips one at a bar at the Crillon Hotel in Paris. Ahh that sounds good about now!
