The Pink Shimmy Cocktail is a creamy cocktail variation from the 1920s of the classic Pink Lady Cocktail.

Pink Shimmy Cocktail Recipe

When I went on the hunt for new cocktail recipes, and Hubby suggested the Pink Lady, I found a variation called the Pink Shimmy cocktail. It was invented in New Orleans in the 1920s. I sincerely doubt the ice cream was originally in that recipe though – seems like something that got added many years later to update the drink.

I am not a gin drinker (at all), so can’t comment on the taste, but it is a nice looking cocktail!

The Pink Lady Cocktail Recipe

I was asking Hubby for a classic cocktail recipe, and he said his mother used to order The Pink Lady Cocktail back in the day. Sooooo I looked up the classic recipe and decided to make it, and share it, with you all!

Apparently, this is the original lady’s night cocktail. It was invented during the prohibition era when er, bathtub gin was less than palatable. This was concocted to make that bad bathtub gin taste better, and it was frequently served to the ladies, hence the name.

I am not a gin drinker (at all), so cannot comment on the taste, but it is a nice looking cocktail!

Old Fashioned Brandy Cocktail


I was looking through classic cocktails that would be perfect on a cold winter night, and decided there is really nothing better than an Old Fashioned Brandy Cocktail!

Old Fashioned Brandy Cocktail


I had forgotten how much I liked an Old Fashioned Brandy Cocktail… when I made it for this post, I had two!

Old Fashioned Brandy Cocktail


This recipe is very close to the recipe in the Modern American Drinks, 1895 cocktail recipe book. I use a specific amount of ingredients where as the Modern American Drinks, 1895 lists generals like “small amount” and “lump of ice”. Still, the Modern American Drinks, 1895 has some wonderful classic recipes you can build on if you like to try the classics!
