Pink Pearl Cocktail.
Take 1 1/2 glasses of grapefruit juice (1 1/2 oz Grapefruit Juice), a dessertspoonful of lemon juice (dash lemon juice), 1/2 a dessertspoonful of grenadine syrup (dash grenadine) and the white of one egg. Add plenty of crushed ice and shake thoroughly.
Weird. If glasses equal 2 oz, this cocktail only has a little more than 3 oz for 6 people. Savoy Cocktails for 6 almost always amount to 12 oz. Seems like something is seriously missing.
I don’t know about you, but it seems to me like it is the booze.
I might recommend trying something like the following:
Pink Pearl Cocktail
1 1/2 oz Grapefruit Juice
1 1/2 oz Mild White Agricole Rhum (Barbancourt white, Batiste White, or 10 Cane Rum)
dash Lemon Juice
1/2 oz egg white
Dry shake ingredients, add ice and shake to chill. Garnish with dashes of peychaud’s bitters on top.
Ah, yes, quite nice. Hmmm… The Pink Baby may be given a run for its money!
This post is one in a series documenting my ongoing effort to make all of the cocktails in the Savoy Cocktail Book, starting at the first, Abbey, and ending at the last, Zed.
