Seven Sins Cocktail

  • SERVINGS: Makes 1 Drink

The Jack Rose (applejack, lime juice and grenadine) is one of mixologist John Coltharp's favorite brandy drinks. Seven Sins is his attempt at converting it into a whiskey cocktail. He strongly recommends preparing your own grenadine: "It makes you wince at the store-bought stuff."
