After getting drink tickets for the Frisco Sour at work one night, I pondered how I could tinker with it. I ended up merging it with the Jack Rose which has been a cult drink in Boston ever since the Jack Rose Society formed here in 2005 and tested out every variation. The Boston version opts for lemon and a dash of Peychaud's. The Frisco Rose later became a drink of the day at Loyal Nine, and I put it on my guest menu at my book launch party at Backbar in 2017.
