When there is a variation on a classic cocktail, often times, the drink has a very clever play on the original drink, and that is the case with the Naked Lady, a rum version of the Pink Lady, which is typically known as a gin-based cocktail.

The drink is very “complete” in the sense that it contains many cocktail flavors: the rum and grenadine provides the sweet flavor, the apricot and lemon provide the sour flavor, and the vermouth elevates the complexity to another level.

Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ ounces of rum
  • 1 ½ ounces of sweet vermouth
  • 1/3 ounce of apricot brandy
  • 1/3 ounce of grenadine
  • 1/3 ounce of lemon juice
  • Ice

Preparation:

  1. Pour the ingredients into a cocktails shaker filled with ice.
  2. Shake until the outside of the shaker is very cold.
  3. Double strain into a chilled cocktail glass (or even a frozen glass).

Equipment:

  • Cocktail shaker
  • Cocktail glass

The lemon zest is a common garnish, for those who desire it. It is a unique drink in that many cocktails don’t require shaking until the shaker is frosted. One can easily see how this has become a romantic or flirtatious drink, given the name, and considering that customers have to say that they would like to order a “naked lady” at the bar or other establishment. For those who want a little more sweet taste, adding agave nectar can achieve this relatively easily. Of course, the lemon juice can be adjusted to match preferences, as well. Regardless, the drink never took off quite like the Pink Lady did, which essentially became the quintessential “female” or “girly” drink by the 1930s, and stars such as Jayne Mansfield used to drink the cocktail before meals. Regardless, the Naked Lady is still a fun and flirtatious twist on a classic.
