Vintage Cocktails #23: The Pink Lady

In Vintage Spirits and Forgotten Cocktails, the following drink is presented as the Secret Cocktail. It is actually a Clover Club cocktail with the addition of a single ingredient. While the drink has with a lovely pink hue, it is actually a great drink and I think would be more popular if it wasn’t for the name.

The Pink Lady
1 1/2 oz Gin
1/2 oz Applejack
Juice of half a Lemon (about 1 oz)
1 Egg White
2 dashes Pomegranate Grenadine

Would you walk into a bar and order a Pink Lady?
