This classic from the 1920s is made with applejack and lemon or lime juice. Applejack is not the same thing as apple brandy; look for Laird's Applejack or Flag Hill Winery's Josiah Bartlett Apple Brandy. You can read about the infamous Mr Rose (for whom this is named) in Esquire Magazine's drinks database.
2 oz Applejack
1 oz Lemon Juice
1⁄2 oz Grenadine
- Shake all ingredients with cracked ice and strain into a cocktail glass.
- Garnish with lemon twist.
Some versions use lime instead of lemon.
The Flag Hill apple brandy was really good in this.
