TOOTS'S JACK ROSES
Toots served his Jack Roses with Laird's Applejack, Jack Rudy grenadine, fresh-squeezed lime juice, and garnishes it with a cherry and apple slice.
JACK ROSE TRIVIA
The Jack Rose was popular in the 1920s and 1930s. It appears in Ernest Hemingway's 1926 novel The Sun Also Rises and is known as John Steinbeck's favorite drink.
Swap the grenadine for Italian vermouth, and you're drinking a Jersey Lightning. Drop the grenadine and add ice and ginger ale, and you're drinking a Applejack Rickey.
