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.
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.
An elegant drink that was created in the 1890s by Louis Eppinger, manager of the Grand Hotel in Yokohama, Japan. The recipe includes both orange and Angostura bitters which gives the cocktail a unique flavour and works perfectly with the dry sherry and dry vermouth.
