Cocktail Friday | Valentine's Pink Lady
For this Cocktail Friday I went pink in honor of Valentine's Day this weekend. The Pink Lady originated in Charleston, South Carolina and has been around since before Prohibition. I had my first taste of this cocktail when I was in Charleston last year and I fell in love with it. There are various recipes for this drink, and I came up with my own version, and it's one of my favorite cocktails!
1 1/2 oz gin
1 oz applejack
1 oz heavy cream
1/2 oz simple syrup
1/2 oz grenadine
splash of fresh lime juice
Pour all ingredients in an ice-filled shaker and shake. Simple!
Cheers and Happy Valentine's Day!
