Pink Lady cocktail

Type: Cocktail

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. The exact origins of the Pink Lady are not fully known but some say it was inspired by the interior architect and prominent society figure Elsie de Wolfe 1865-1950. There are many differing recipes to be found – here is one.

Tanglefoot

The overriding flavour in the Tanglefoot cocktail is rum, with a lovely citrusy sharpness from the lemon to follow. The orange juice adds some sweetness to the drink and compliments the other ingredients perfectly.

Similar to an Espresso Martini, the Black Martini cocktail is still rich and indulgent but contains rum rather than vodka. This recipe also includes Bols Cacao Brown; a dark, rich and bitter chocolate liqueur that has hints of orange and vanilla. This drink makes the perfect after-dinner cocktail.
