The White Lady is a cocktail Nigella Lawson imbibed during her college days. As we had all the ingredients on hand I thought, why not try it...sounds delicious.
The only "problem" is, you can certainly tip a few of these back before your brain has caught up to the alcohol overload. Very dangerous!
From Forever Summer by Nigella Lawson
"When I was an undergraduate in the Brideshead (Revisited) era of the 1980's Oxford this was the drink of choice at many a pretentious cocktail party. It's not a cheap way to get drunk, but remember we're talking the age of the jeunesse doree here: I seem to remember sipping this under a veiled pillbox hat, the ash from a Sobranie Black Russian flicked from meshed gloved fingertip. I feel better getting this off my chest."
1 ounce Plymouth (or other) gin
1 ounce Cointreau
2 tablespoons lemon juice (about half a lemon's worth)
1 tablespoon sugar syrup
Shake ingredients and pour over ice.
You've been warned....drink at your own risk!
