Rose Cocktail (English Version)

The oldest reference to the Rose cocktail I can find is Robert Vermeire’s 1922 English cocktail book Cocktails and How to Mix Them. He credits its invention to Sidney Knight in London at the Alhambra theatre (I have no idea who Sidney Knight is, nor could I find anything about him).

What sets the English version of this cocktail apart from the French (currant) and American (raspberry) grenadine is used as the red fruit sweetener.
