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!


As always, drink responsibly and please don’t drink and drive.
