Yeah yeah. I know it should be “garnered.” But we LUPEC ladies do love our garnish.

Nonetheless, enjoy these gems I’ve stumbled across lately:

Imbibe magazine rates absinthes
Get your green fairy on with one of these fine beverages. It seems price doesn’t always equal quality. But it doesn’t hurt.

CHOW features raw egg cocktails
As we know, the raw egg white in the pink ladies we enjoyed at Pink-A-Rama didn’t kill us. In fact, they added a nice body and a little froth to our cocktails. Perhaps Widow’s Kiss Karen will offer up some Ramos Gin Fizzes for our February / Mardi Gras meet?

In anticipation of tomorrow night’s Pink-A-Rama event, I decided to try my hand at making one of the vintage drinks we are offering – the Pink Lady.

To many, what comes to mind when hearing that name is a rich, sweet, milkshake-like concoction. That is the version that was popular in the 60s and 70s. But if you look back to the 30s, you’ll find that the Pink Lady was once a sophisticated, dry, and somewhat tart cocktail.

This is the version we will be offering at Pink-A-Rama:

  • 1 1/2 oz. gin
  • 1/2 oz . applejack
  • juice from 1/2 a lemon
  • 1/2 an egg white
  • 1-4 dashes of grenadine

Combine ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake briskly, and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a cherry.

Sorry to say, I don’t stock applejack in my bar. But I did have Cointreau. I subbed that in, and made a Boxcar, which was darn tasty!

Here are the other two vintage cocktails that we’ll be offering:

The Real Cosmopolitan:

  • 1 1/2 oz gin
  • 2 dashes Cointreau
  • Juice of one lemon
  • 1 tsp. raspberry syrup

Shake ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

And finally, for the designated drivers we love so much, a true Shirley Temple:

  • 4 oz. ginger ale
  • 2/3 oz. grenadine
  • 2 oz. orange juice

Pour ginger ale and orange juice over ice. Add grenadine. Garnish with lemon slice and a cherry.

Now I am so thirsty! See you tomorrow night at the Ruby Room!
