Recipe: The Pink Lady

The Pink Lady cocktail is a timeless classic with its roots tracing back to the early 20th century. Its origin isn’t known for sure, but my favorite story is that it was named after Broadway star Hazel Dawn, who played the titular character in the 1911 Broadway musical The Pink Lady.

Just like Hazel, this cocktail is visually striking and evokes the glamor of the 1930s. With a striking pink hue and a velvety smooth top it’s, naturally, perfect for a Valentine’s Day themed Ripples print. I especially like the flavor balance between the botanical notes of gin paired with lemon juice and grenadine.

Use the red pod to turn your drink into art!
