Fairy Belle Cocktial

A belief in fairies is necessary when reading Yeats Celtic Twilight. It may be inspired by Glendalough Wild Irish Botanical gin in the Fairy Belle Cocktail. This drink is unusual among the many apricot brandy and gin cocktails in that it it has egg white but no lemon juice. It also has grenadine, so it is an Easter egg pink color.

I really liked how the Glendalough gin is so floral and fresh. There's a lot going on in this drink, and the last thing you want is for it to taste like a Christmas tree when it is going for spring scents.
  • 2 oz. gin (Glendalough Wild Irish Botanical used)
  • 1 oz. apricot brandy
  • 1 tsp. grenadine
  • 1 egg white
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
