        A ROSE BY ANY OTHER NAME small white logo

BY CHRIS POH

A Jack Rose cocktail as seen in American Public House ReviewA good old fashioned spirited debate has always been at the core of this republic, and more often than not it was a good old fashioned spirit that helped to fuel our democratic discourse. Many of our earliest purveyors of political speak loosened their lips on that luscious libation produced by the Laird family at America’s first licensed distillery in Scobeyville, New Jersey. George Washington introduced its virtues to the Virginia colony; Abraham Lincoln poured it at his Springfield tavern, and William Henry Harrison coddled his constituency with generous portions at Whig rallies. The true spirit of America and the lubricant of liberty of which I speak is - LAIRD'S APPLEJACK.

Rachel Maddow as seen in American Public House ReviewOther than straight up in a brandy snifter, my favorite way to consume applejack is in a Jack Rose cocktail.

Because of the crucial role of APPLEJACK in our nation’s political past, we thought it might be nice to have an actual political pundit show our readers how to properly mix a Jack Rose. Click here to watch Rachel Maddow work her magic with a cocktail shaker. But beware…probably because of her left of center leanings, she suggests using a French calvados as a possible substitute for applejack.

Please Note: In order to maintain a balanced editorial policy APHR will endeavor to feature cocktail recipes presented by personalities and commentators that represent the entire political spectrum.

Possible Upcoming Columns:
