This cocktail contains 4 different spirits and an unusual ingredient, almond syrup. The Fog Cutter cocktail gained renewed popularity in the 1990s when Tiki food, décor and cocktails made a comeback. They say if you are feeling a bit foggy headed, this cocktail should certainly cut through it!
This recipe was created by Fred Faecks in 1914 and is very similar to a perfect martini. The orange bitters and grenadine syrup give the cocktail sweetness and depth.
The Pink Lady is a classic girlie and feminine gin-based cocktail with a long history. Its pink colour is down to the grenadine and it typically has egg white added, giving it a frothy texture.
The exact origins of the Pink Lady are not fully known but some say it was inspired by the interior architect and prominent society figure Elsie de Wolfe 1865-1950. There are many differing recipes to be found – here is one.
