The White Lady is one of those instant great drinks. Made with only three of the most common ingredients in a bar, basically anyone should be able to shake up a White Lady.
As usual with this few-ingredients-type-of-cocktail, it’s extra nice to use high quality spirits. Another trick is to use organic lemons. We always do that, and find these lemons smaller but more juicy than regular ones. And it’s nice to know you are only getting lemon, and no pesticides in your cocktail isn’t it?
What’s in a White Lady
1,5 oz good gin
0,75 oz cointreau
0,75 oz organic lemon juice
Shake all ingredients with ice, and pour in pre chilled glassware.
Decorating with a luxardo maraschino cherry gives this pale cocktail a very elegant look.
