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!

  1. I’m not a huge gin drinking fan either, but I want to expand beyond vodka! And since I just made homemade grenadine, I’ll give this a try and report back 🙂
