Friday’s Vintage Cocktail!

Hello lovelies!

I’m so excited to be back online and blogging after my last computer passed on, and buying a new fabulous laptop! For my first post having a new computer I’m sharing my Friday’s Vintage Cocktail blog, where I’ll be featuring a cocktail from the golden age of glamour to celebrate the weekend being upon us! As always please remember to drink responsibly, and if there are any younger readers to please abide by the drinking laws in your country or state, you can always make a mocktail though!

For today I thought I’d feature the delectable White Lady Cocktail! The White Lady is a member of the “Sours” cocktail family, which is where a cocktail is combined with base liquor, lemon or lime, and a sweetener, some opulent examples include the Sidecar, and the Margarita. This drink was first described in the 1862 book called How To Mix Drinks by Jerry Thomas, and became popular during the 1940’s and 50’s through hollywood stars, and iconic people from this time such as Kevin Starr.

Method:

  1. Combine all your ingredients in a shaker with ice.
  2. Shake well and strain into a beautiful cocktail glass.

The White Lady is a beautiful but potent drink, I’d recommend high quality liquors for this to taste incredible and finely strain you lemon juice for a smooth finish. She definitely lives up to being a part of the “Sours” cocktail family, but I do love my sour flavours! If you struggle with sour or the flavour of alcohol I think Soda water would be a fabulous edition to lessen the flavour.

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend, and be sure to stay tuned as more glamorously vintage blogs will be posted soon!
