Friday’s Vintage Cocktail: The Pink Lady

Hello lovelies!

I’m very happy to bring back an old segment from my blog where each Friday I experiment with making vintage cocktails to celebrate the weekend being upon us! And I think this weekend should be even more of a celebration with it being a three-day weekend in Western Australia! Please remember to drink responsibly and if I have any readers who are younger, please note the age limit on alcohol in your country, but you can always make a non-alcoholic cocktail version of these recipes!

For this week’s vintage cocktail I’m featuring The Pink Lady a decadent drink which was popular during the 40’s and 50’s, this was a drink which was regarded as more of a demure feminine styled cocktail as the flavour is very soft. It was also known as the drink for those who don’t like the “harder stuff” so if you’re like me, and rather have a fruity flavour of pungent alcohol flavour this is the drink for you!

Simply combine ingredients in a shaker and shake well, strain out ice, pouring into a cocktail or martini glass, serving with a straw and cherry if desired.

The Pink Lady is a divine cocktail, based on the ingredients I thought it would have a bit more of a harsh flavour, but the cream really creates a soft velvet taste, and you’ve got to love anything in a rosey pink colour. I love cocktails that are simple to make, and I think this is definitely my favourite that I’ve made so far! Gin was a very popular alcohol in the golden age of glamour, but its really not one of my favourites personally, but in this drink you really cannot taste that flavour even though the other ingredients are so small! photo 4
I hope you all have a beautiful long weekend!
