Cocktail: White Lady

There is some debate about the origins of the White Lady cocktail, with some claiming it was invented in New York or London. However, the most common consensus is that it was the famous Harry’s New York Bar in (confusingly) Paris that was the true birthplace of the delicious cocktail we have come to know and love.

A simple staple that every gin lover should have in their cocktail-making arsenal, the White Lady is a tipple that truly allows your gin of choice to shine. Bottoms up!
