The Pink Lady cocktail has a long and storied history since it first appeared in print in the early 1920s. The drink has been a favorite of bartenders and cocktail enthusiasts alike, and has evolved over the years to become one of the most popular drinks around.
The original Pink Lady recipe called for gin, grenadine, egg white, and lemon juice, and this combination of ingredients has been the basis of the drink ever since. The recipe has been tweaked and adjusted over the years, but the basic elements remain the same.
To make a Pink Lady cocktail at home, you’ll need:
- 2 ounces of gin (you can also use vodka, white rum, or tequila)
- 1/2 ounce of grenadine
- 1 egg white
- 1/2 ounce of freshly squeezed lemon juice
Pour all the ingredients into a shaker filled with ice and shake vigorously until the egg white is completely incorporated. Strain the mixture into a chilled martini glass and garnish with a lemon wedge or a cherry.
For a sweeter drink, you can substitute a teaspoon of simple syrup for the egg white. You can also experiment with different types of alcohol to find the flavor that best suits your tastes.
For the perfect Pink Lady, use a martini glass, regular ice cubes, and a lemon wedge or cherry for the garnish. The combination of gin, grenadine, egg white, and lemon juice creates a flavorful and balanced drink that is sure to please. Enjoy!
