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.

The Pink Lady Cocktail Recipe


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

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.

  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 🙂
