The New Parisian: Pink Drink to serve on Valentine’s DayPosted: January 31, 2011
The Parisian Cocktail: Valentine’s Day is coming up, and Esquire Magazine has updated the recipe for a classic drink from the 20’s, made in Harry’s New York Bar in Paris. Men: If you want to shake up something for your lady on 2/14, try this instead of a Cosmo – be classy!
1 oz. Gin (Esquire recommends Tanqueray)
1 oz. Dry vermouth (Esquire recommends Noily Prat)
1/2 oz. Fresh Squeezed lemon juice
1/2 oz. Creme de Cassis (a Sweet liqueur – turns the drink pink)
Shake with ice in a cocktail shaker, strain into Martini or “cocktail” glasses (the old style shallow rounded stemmed glass)
Have another. Celebrate!
