You may not be acquainted with the Pink Lady. The drink, a variation on the classic White Lady made with gin, lemon juice, Cointreau and egg white, gets unfairly maligned for its pink color. While its hue (which it gets from a few dashes of grenadine) might suggest a too-sweet Cosmopolitan or White Zinfandel, the Pink Lady is a perfectly balanced cocktail that's wonderfully tart and floral. And now there's a great excuse to try one: Throughout October, restaurants across the country will be serving variations on the Pink Lady in support of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month with proceeds from the cocktails going to breast cancer charities.
Here, a few of the participating restaurants and their takes on the classic cocktail.
RPM Italian; Chicago
The trendy, celeb-frequented restaurant is serving the Clover Club, a variation on the Pink Lady made with raspberry syrup in place of grenadine.
