The Pink Lady is as girly as it sounds, with sweet grenadine, tangy lemon and tearful gin.
This is the simplified version of the original recipe, using lemonade instead of lemon juice and omitting the egg white altogether. Because of this, it’s less pink than blood red, but still just as delicious and much simpler to make. This is the version you’ll get at many bars with a cocktail menu, and you won’t need any fancy equipment to make it.
- 2oz gin
- dash of grenadine
- white lemonade
Add gin and grenadine to ice and stir, then add white lemonade.
Strain into a cocktail glass and enjoy!
*I usually like to shake everything, but for gin recipes I always stir. Shaking gin causes bubbles of air and “bruises” the flavour, causing it to be bitter. So when Mr Bond orders his Martini shaken not stirred, he’s taking a weak Martini, however unless you’re a gin connoisseur, you probably won’t notice.
