The Pink Lady Cocktail

No, the other kind.

The Pink Lady Cocktail is a sweet, tangy and tart cocktail that is absolutely perfect for Mother’s Day.  Not too syrupy, the Pink Lady is a sophisticated but playful, old-school cocktail that can easily be sipped at brunch or before a great dinner.

Now, unlike with my pisco sour, I manned up and made this with the requisite egg white.  If it’s good enough, presumably, for Rizzo, I can do it too.

  1. Girl , you’re gonna have me drunk on Pink Ladies & Sangria all weekend! I wish I had a drink to add to your link party.

  2. That looks REALLY good! I was instantly drawn in by the HEAVY CREAM! Yum, yum, yum! I will definitely save this “recipe”. Is it called a recipe if it refers to drinks? Hmmm… Why wouldn’t it be, right? I also love the look of your blog. I love how you can see several posts at once. Very cute and clean! Thanks for sending me your link. I”m following you now!

  3. that would be so rough! i’m actually not a big drinker (i rarely even finish the drinks i make for cocktail friday), but to be told none whatsoever? cruelty!

  4. the egg white was a big hurdle for me. happily, i have a strong enough immune system. i was going to say pregnant ladies should probably skip the egg, but pregnant ladies probably should skip the gin, too. duh.

  5. i usually use skim milk instead of heavy cream, but for once i had it in the house. makes ALL the difference! i hope they’re still called recipes, because cocktails are the only recipes i make really well!
