The Jack Rose Cocktail






Jack Rose.



 Tid bits.

I was first introduced to this drink at Copa 'd Oro.  It was originally on their Recession Hour Special ($5!), but it's no longer printed on any of their menus.  They'll make it for you if you ask.  I just wouldn't expect any discount though.



A little history.



A little history (cont).




The players.



The preparation. 

I vehemently disagree with the scant amount of grenadine they use here.  No way you can achieve a rosy looking cocktail with just dashes of grenadine.  I used less than ½ an ounce.  Remember, the grenadine isn't just for color.  It's also a sweetener so start with a little less and adjust to your taste. Cheers!
