When I first saw these edible flowers, I knew I had to create a delicious cocktail to share with you all. I instantly thought PINK, so here is the Pink Lady Gin Martini that is so refreshingly delicious.
I’m not normally a gin drinker (like at all) but this drink surprised me. So, so, so good! World Martini Day is approaching this June 19th, which gives you an extra excuse to indulge. 😉
- 2 parts Gin (whichever brand you prefer)
- 1 part Brandy
- ½ parts lemon juice
- 2 dashes of grenadine
- 1 egg white
- Ice to chill
- Start by adding ice to the shaker.
- Pour lemon juice, egg white, grenadine, gin, and brandy into the shaker.
- Shake extremely well!
- Strain into the cocktail glass.
- Garnish with an edible flower or lemon twist.
Some people have a strong preference of vodka over gin, but this cocktail can really be made with either spirit. Basically, gin brings a more complicated and botanical profile, while vodka offers a smooth, modern experience. The botanical profile of gin gives this martini a smooth finish with the lemon in there as well. There’s no shame in giving each one a try, and even in different circumstances… I definitely wasn’t a gin drinker until I found one I liked, as well as a bartender to instruct me on what pairs well with it.
