The Four Leaf Rose Cocktail

A twist on the classic Jack Rose Cocktail, a classic American concoction made up of Laird’s Applejack Brandy, the mixologists at Bar Dupont created the Four Leaf Irish Rose. Tullamore Dew Irish Whiskey seamlessly mixes with Laird’s, an American spirit, just as Bar Dupont has done for years in Washington, DC.

  • 1.0 Laird’s Applejack
  • .75 Lime
  • .50 Jack Rudy Grenadine
  • Shake

  • Lime wheel


Start by chilling your coupe glass. Build the cocktail in a mixing glass and shake. Strain ingredients into coupe. Add a lime wheel.
