Pink Pearl Cocktail

Pink Pearl Cocktail

Pink Pearl Cocktail.
(6 People)
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
dash Grenadine
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.
