Hazardous ingredients

Pasteurised egg white is potentially hazardous for those with an allergy, intolerance or medical condition.

Review:

Vivid blue with a pale blue head, this is a striking cocktail. It also packs a whopping 45ml (1½oz) of blue curaçao but is far from being a "disco drink". It is a balanced colourful and vintage riff on the even older White Lady.

History:

Recipe adapted from W. J. Tarling's 1937 Café Royal Cocktail Book (Coronation Edition) which says this drink was "Invented by Victor." Victor Cabrin is widely credited with creating the White Lady.

BLUE LADY
Invented by Victor
½ Blue Curaçao (Garnier).
¼ Booth's Gin.
¼ Fresh Lemon Juice.
Dash of White of Egg.
Shake and strain.

W. J. Tarling, 1937
