The drink is named after “Bald Jack” Rose, a notorious New York gambler who was a friend of author and cocktail enthusiast Ernest Hemingway.

The Jack Rose was a popular drink during the Prohibition era, as applejack was one of the few spirits that was still legal to produce in the United States. Today, the Jack Rose is a classic cocktail that is enjoyed by many, with variations that include the addition of other ingredients like bitters or egg white.
