Pink Lady / Clover Club

Pink Lady

  • 1 1/2 oz Gin
  • 1/3 oz Grenadine or Raspberry Syrup
  • 1 Egg white (Optional)
  • Garnish with a Cherry

I recommend using a Champagne Saucer glass for this cocktail.

and a variation of the Pink Lady…

Clover Club Cocktail

  • 1 1/2 oz Gin
  • 3/4 oz Lemon Juice
  • 1/4 Raspberry Syrup (or Grenadine)
  • 1 Egg White
  • Garnish with a Cherry

You could use a Champange Saucer or a Martini Glass for this cocktail

For these two cocktails, load up the ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice. Make sure you shake it really well to mix everything together. You could also do a dry shake (without the ice) for a minute to emulsify the egg white and then add the ice and shake for another 20 seconds. Garnish with a cherry. In my case, I tried to fancy it up with 2 lime peels and a cherry.

The original cocktail, the Pink Lady, has many variations for ingredients. The basic recipe calls for Gin, Grenadine, and Egg white.

When I learned to make this drink, sweet cream was also part of the recipe for the Pink Lady. However, I later discovered that the creamy version is known as a Pink Shimmy.

Cheers!

EDIT (Jan 27, 2013): Important discovery. Grenadine is pretty terrible. It’s just flavoured sugar really. Use Okanagan Spirits! http://www.okanaganspirits.com/products/liqueurs/
A bit pricey but for a quality drink, you’ll want this. I’m pretty sure this is what most quality bars making this drink will use.

Grown-Up Rootbeer Float

 

Love a Rootbeer float but it’s just not “fun” enough? Try boozing it up with some Whisky!

  • Root Beer
  • Vanilla Ice Cream
  • Whisky! (Amount is up to you)

 

P.S. – I’ve been lazy with the updates. Hopefully I’ll have some more posts soon!
