    White Lady

    Originally created by the celebrated bartender Harry McElone at the Ciro Club in London. He adapted his recipe in the 1920’s at his own Harry’s New York Bar in Paris. The cocktail grew in popularity and in 1930, Harry Craddock, of The American Bar at The Savoy in London, published the recipe in his Savoy Cocktail Book. Peter Dorelli, the legendary former manager of The American Bar added a dash of egg white to bind the drink together and give a smooth and silky texture and finish. Bertha’s botancials shine through brilliantly in a White Lady.
