The Pink Lady was named after Hazel Dawn, an actress in the broad musical “the Pink Lady”…Maybe.
Variations on the Pink Lady
Cocktail Hammer gets its inspiration from Dale Degroff aka “King Cocktail”. You may find variations on the Pink Lady Cocktail using egg white instead of Heavy cream as mentioned below. We decided to present the recipe involving heavy cream, which we find gives it a different, thicker, and lovelier viscosity.
However, if you are more comfortable using egg whites as you would making a whiskey sour then we have attached a YouTube video from Anders Erickson with that variation instead.
Aquafaba Instead of Egg White
If you don’t want to use egg white to make your pink lady, you can substitute aquafaba to replace the foam top you would usually get with emulsified egg white. Aquafaba of course being Vegan friendly.
