The White Lady: A classic of the cocktail world

Posted in the Gin Forum



#1 Aug 10, 2009
I'm a big fan of sours, so I've been playing around with the White Lady for a few weeks now. Originally made back in the 1920's, the cocktail is steeped in history and is a long running classic.

Although I've tried different variations, I've come to realise that there isn't really anyway to improve on what we have already. I think any changes that could have been made would have been made by now, so I'm going to stick with the original (and best) recipe:


1 PART Orange Curaçao

1 PART Freshly squeezed lemon juice

1/4 PART Sugar syrup

1 PART Egg white

Method: Here's the "how to mix the White lady" mixology video:

If anyone can think of anything to add, let me know.
