How To Make The White Lady – then and now | Anders Erickson

There are a couple of different ways to try this drink – see which one you like the best!

Today I’ll be showing you how to make the white lady! This is an airy gin cocktail that goes down easily, but my recipe is far from the original. When Harry MacElhone created this drink in 1919, there was no gin at all! I’m curious what that will taste like, so I’ll be making one of those too. In my version I use egg white, but that is entirely optional. There are a couple of different ways to try this drink – see which one you like the best! Cheers!
