Pink Lady / Pink Rose

The Pink Lady is among several "pink" themed drinks that are pretty much the same combination of gin, egg white, cream and grenadine. The concept is kind of complex. It isn't a dessert drink, exactly, but it has a texture to the egg white foam that is fattier with cream, and grenadine produces these firm, pink bubbles on the sides of the glass as you drink it down.

These are photos of the two drinks done at different times. The look is strikingly similar, as are the recipes. They only difference is how much grenadine you use. The recipe I've provided is for the Pink Lady. The Pink Rose, below can be done by using the recommended change in grenadine proportions in the recipe. This is a good drink overall, if a little too pink and fluffy for there to be more than one of them.

  • 2 oz. gin
  • 1 tsp. grenadine (1/4 tsp. for Pink Rose)
  • 1 tsp. half-and-half
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
  • 1 egg white
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into another shaker tin. Discard ice and re-shake for foam. Pour into a chilled cocktail glass.
