It’s finally time to breathe in the crisp autumn air! Goodbye sun-kissed tans, sipping rosé on rooftops, spending weekends at the beach, and hello pumpkin spice lattes, scarves, boots, and spending cozy nights by the fireplace. Fall is especially gorgeous in D.C. and wonderful time to visit the city. I look forward to seeing the beauty and natural surroundings of the C&O canal from Capella Washington, D.C., Georgetown.
With the seasons changing, , it’s time to switch out my cocktail list and introduce some cool weather concoctions featuring the flavors of the season. Rye Bar Bartender Cecilio knew exactly how to indulge my love for fall when he made me a Jack Rose Cocktail. The combination of citrus and pomegranate were so full of sugar and spice, that I knew I had to share the recipe with you. Luckily, Cecilio gave me an easy, “do-it-yourself” version that you can make at home for your friends and family.
Jack Rose Cocktail
- Laird Apple Jack Liquor -2 oz.
- Lime Juice – ¾ oz.
- Grenadine – ¾ oz.
Step One: Combine all ingredients in a shaker
Step Two: Shake the shaker for approx. 30 seconds, or until the shaker is frosted and cold
Step Three: Strain the mixture into a martini glass
Finito! Now you are all set to fall into fall! If you’re able to visit Capella Washington, D.C., Georgetown, Cecilio and the team will be sure to have one of these delicious cocktails ready for you in the Rye Bar. I would love to see you share your version of the Jack Rose Cocktail on social media! Or tell me about some of your favorite fall cocktails. Just be sure to tag @CapellaDC so I can share your photos with the rest of my followers!
