Classic Pink Lady, mixed and ready to drink.

Drink Ingredients:

  • 1 fresh cream
  • 1/2 grenadine
  • 1 house gin

Mixing Method: Shake

  1. Scoop a mixing glass 3/4 full with ice.
  2. Add all the ingredients.
  3. Cover with shaker cap and shake well.
  4. Strain into a chilled martini glass.
  5. Serve with a straw.

Mixology Notes:

This drink is considered a retro classic. It has stood the test of time and is always among the top 50 most popular cocktails in the world.

The original recipe from 100 years ago used an egg white and omitted the cream. More recent recipes use cream instead of the egg white. Try it both ways to see what you like best. And don’t be afraid experiment with a dash or two of citrusy bitters.

Homemade grenadine always tastes better than store bought. If you would like to try making it, our homemade grenadine recipe is here.

Cocktail Variations:

Skinny Pink Lady – Made with 2% milk instead of cream.
