Pink Panther

This is a sweet drink with creme de cassis and vodka as well as dry vermouth and orange juice. It's not as citrusy as the Clover Club which has a similar look to it. Done right it has a nice egg white foam and a sweet liqueur center that's not at all tangy or spicy but a bit like blood orange juice.

So the Pink Panther is a vodka drink, but I chose Belle Isle moonshine. Triple distilled and bottled at 80 proof, the white spirit is all but vodka in name, and the distillers sometimes refer to their flagship spirit as vodka. The only difference is a slightly sweet scent and flavor like cereal grains.
  • 2 oz. vodka (Belle Isle moonshine used)
  • 1 oz. dry vermouth
  • 1 oz. orange juice
  • 1/2 oz. creme de cassis (G. E. Messenez used)
  • egg white
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
