History of the Pink Lady Cocktail

The history of the Pink Lady is rather shady. Although it has been around since the Prohibition, absolutely no one's certain who made it, the reason why it had been created or even how it got its name. Several believe however, the hue and frothiness stimulate a femininity not present in other drinks of that time period.
