Pink Lady

The gin-based Pink Lady cocktail, with the pink coming from Grenadine, was created during Prohibition, but other versions were spawned in the 1930s; The Savoy Cocktail Book lists five. This recipe has gin, egg white, cream, and grenadine shaken into a creamy pink-hued drink.

Instructions

  1. 1Place a cocktail glass in the freezer to chill.
  2. 2Place the gin, egg white (if using), cream, and grenadine in a cocktail shaker. Fill the shaker halfway with ice and shake until the outside is frosty, about 30 seconds. Strain into the chilled glass.

Variations:

Pink Panther: Substitute 1 ounce vodka and 1 ounce amaretto for the gin, and omit the egg.

Pink Rose: Substitute light cream for the heavy cream, and add a dash of fresh lemon juice.
