Cocktail of the Week: Pink Gentleman

20 May

Another Mackey original.  This one was inspired by the pisco sour.  The egg yolk gives it a silky texture and beautiful pink foam on top.  I used Urban Moonshine citrus bitters, but Angostura bitters would work fine.

Ingredients:

2 oz freshly squeezed lemon juice

2 oz rye whiskey

1/2 oz grenadine

white of small egg

bitters

Mix all ingredients in a cold shaker.  Shake VERY well and VERY vigorously and strain into a chilled glass.  Float about three dainty drops on the foam. The bitters shouldn’t mix into the drink- they’re meant to be a little foamy kick.

tart and tasty
