Million-Dollar Cocktail

Apparently adding egg white, grenadine and pineapple juice to a Sweet Martini makes it a Million-Dollar cocktail. This goes along with the thinking that pineapple makes drinks "royal" or "special," and egg white makes a drink "silver" and "royal," as seen in the names of so many versions of these classic cocktails. There's never an ingredients that really costs much, but I think that the froth and the silkiness of this cocktail give off the impression that it is worth a chunk of change.
  • 2 oz. gin (Sunset Hills used)
  • 1 oz. sweet vermouth
  • 1 oz. pineapple juice
  • 1 tsp. grenadine
  • 1 egg white
Combine all ingredients in a shaker and shake vigorously to create foam. Add ice and shake to chill. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
