Presented by: Chip, Merchants Cafe in Seattle
The White Lady is essentially a Sidecar but made with gin rather than brandy. As with many cocktails the origins are debated, though Harry MacElhone also claims to have invented this one as a tribute to Mata Hari in 1919. It was a popular drink during the Prohibition era, known for its simplicity.
- 1 1/2 oz gin
- 1 1/2 oz Cointreau
- 1 1/2 oz lemon juice
