Classic Pink Lady Cocktail Recipe

Invented somewhere around the early 1900s this cocktail was named after a broadway show during that time called The Pink Lady. Oddly enough this old time pink cocktail shares a similar history to a more modern pink cocktail, the Cosmopolitan. Both are incredible drinks that became wildly popular during their days but soon after fell from favor as they became associated with being girly drinks. Although the Cosmo and Pink Lady are nothing to mess with. If made right, both of these drinks taste amazing and will lay you out. So if drinking a Pink Lady is girly, then count me one of the girls.
