Jacques Rose Cocktail

The Jack Rose cocktail gets a simple update with Calvados, plus a few dashes of Angostura. “This is a fancy version of a tasty and simple cocktail that has stood the test of time,” says Café Cancale bar manager Scott Kennedy.

2 oz. Calvados (Kennedy uses Daron Calvados Fine)
½ oz. Café Cancale grenadine
¾ oz. fresh lemon juice
¼ oz. demerara syrup (1:1)
2 dashes Angostura bitters
Tools: shaker, strainer
Glass: cocktail
Garnish: lemon peel

Combine all of the ingredients in a shaker. Add ice and shake to chill. Double strain into a chilled glass and garnish.

Café Cancale Grenadine: Combine 1 quart of pomegranate juice with 1 oz. of orange blossom water, 2 oz. of pomegranate molasses and 1 quart of granulated sugar in a saucepan. Bring to a simmer while mixing well to dissolve molasses and sugar. Remove from the heat and let cool. Pour into a jar, and keep the lid loose until the container is cool to the touch, then tighten. Refrigerate for up to 2 weeks.
