Pink Lady

Pink Lady cocktail with gin, applejack, lemon juice, grenadine, and egg white

The Pink Lady is a lovely gin sour that riffs on the Clover Club, adding applejack (or your favorite style of apple brandy) to the mix. It’s well-balanced and not too sweet, assuming you’re using a real pomegranate grenadine and not just red syrup.

We haven’t found a reliable source on the Pink Lady’s origins, but it appears to go back at least to the American Prohibition era.
