Navy Perfect Lady
Inspired by Edward VIII's abdication to marry his perfect lady, Wallis Simpson, the Perfect Lady cocktail was created by Sidney Cox in 1936, winning The British Empire Cocktail Competition with it.
Largely inspired by the classic White Lady, The Perfect Lady is a little lighter and fruitier, replacing the triple sec with peach liqueur, which is why using our punchier Navy Strength isn't overpowering in the cocktail.
40ml Portobello Road Navy Strength Gin
20ml Creme De Peche
25ml Lemon juice
15ml Egg White
5ml Sugar Syrup
Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker and shake with ice. Fine strain into a chilled coupette glass.
