Pink Lady

Pink Lady

 

The creamier version of the Pink Lady for this recipe is thought to have been around since the 1920's. As most older drinks there are many versions this one uses both cream and an egg white. Once named on Esquire's list of the ten worst cocktails, most likely due to it's girly nature and color, it is still a great drink that has more kick then one would think.

 

Ingredients: 
2 oz Gin
1 tsp Grenadine
1 tsp ½ and ½
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
1 egg white
Preparation: 

 

Pour all ingredients into a shaker glass filled with ice.   Shake until the egg breaks down and is foamy.  Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.  Garnish with a cherry.
