The Pilgrim is a sweet and spicy rum-based cocktail that uses a fairly unusual ingredient, pimento liqueur. This is a traditional Jamaican liqueur that resembles the powdered allspice, that is widely used in cakes and desserts.

The Pink Lady is a classic girlie and feminine gin-based cocktail with a long history. Its pink colour is down to the grenadine and it typically has egg white added, giving it a frothy texture.
