THE JAZZ AGE
Toasting Hemingway’s Paris With a Jack Rose Cocktail
The classic and autumnal applejack drink is featured in ‘The Sun Also Rises’ and is quite tasty.
As the days grow colder and shorter, autumn is the perfect season to enjoy one of the all-time classics, the Jack Rose. The drink is made with the quintessential fall crop, the good old apple. Indeed, long before Americans were making corn into bourbon, farmers in the Thirteen Colonies were making applejack, the principal component of this drink.
