If you’ve never tried apple brandy, fall is the perfect time, though Jackson Cannon’s Jack Rose is delicious any time of year. Be sure to use Applejack, a potent American spirit that dates back to Colonial times, and not another apple brandy. Blended with perfect proportions of fresh lemon juice and homemade grenadine, it makes a lovely cocktail. For a full trio of 3-ingredient cocktails, take a look at the Obituary Cocktail and the Gold Rush cocktail too.

It’s definitely worth making your own grenadine, but since you’ll have 2 cups, try using it in our Ward Eight cocktail recipe and our Scofflaw cocktail recipe too, or for a non-alcoholic grenadine delight, get our Shirley Temple recipe.

For the Jack Rose:
  1. 1Combine all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice and shake until chilled, about 15 seconds. Strain into a chilled coupe.

For the homemade grenadine:

  1. 1Combine the pomegranate juice and sugar in a saucepan and place over medium-high heat. Stir frequently and bring to just under a boil. Reduce the heat to just under a simmer and cook for 20 to 30 minutes.
  2. 2When the syrup has darkened and is thick enough to coat the back of a metal spoon, it’s ready. Remove from the heat and let cool completely.
  3. 3Add the orange blossom water and stir. Label, date, and refrigerate. It keeps for 4 weeks.
