boston lady

1 1/2 oz Gin (Beefeater)
3/4 oz Lemon Juice
1/2 oz Apricot Liqueur (Rothman & Winter)
1/4 oz Grenadine
1 Egg White

Shake once without ice and once with ice, and strain into a cocktail coupe.

During a recent USBG Boston Classic Cocktail Happy Hour, the topic of drinks created in or named after Boston came up. When the Boston Cocktail was mentioned, I commented that it was Mr. Boston's renaming the Bermudian or Bermuda Rose in 1935 to fit a theme instead of creating a cocktail anew. This flavor profile was influenced style-wise by the classic Boxcar that I had just made to take the Boston Cocktail in a White Lady direction to craft the Boston Lady.
The Boston Lady welcomed the nose with an apricot, berry, and pine bouquet. Next, a creamy lemon sip with a vague plum-like fruity note danced into a gin, pomegranate, and apricot swallow.
