Prep Time 3 minutes
Servings 1


  • 50 ml London dry gin
  • 10 ml freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 7.5 ml grenadine syrup
  • 15 ml pasteurised egg white


  1. Shake all the ingredients in a shaker without ice (dry). 

  2. It helps if you use one of those mini electric whisks for frothing milk to get a head on your cocktail.

  3.  Then add ice to the shaker and shake vigorously ~ very! Much more than you normally would for a non-eggy cocktail.

  4. Strain through a fine sieve into a chilled coupe glass.

  5. Garnish with a maraschino cherry, or two, or three...

Recipe Notes


Grenadine syrup is what gives the Pink Lady its colour. But despite it looking very much like a 'girly' drink the Pink Lady packs quite a punch. It would have to with 50ml of gin hiding under its frilly skirts.


It differs from Clover Club by the omission of sweet vermouth making it a drier cocktail.
