We’re going to use these to make the White Lady Cocktail but first dish so let’s get into there’s a couple of different origin stories for this drink now the white lady is originally believed to have been created by Harry McElhone while he was working at London’s Cairo club in 1919 at that time he used creme de menthe triple sec and lemon juice in the equal parts now in 1923 he moved to Paris and started Terri’s New York bar where he then swapped the creme de menthe for gin the other story is that this cocktail was created by Harry Craddock and he worked at the American Bar wild to Savoy Hotel in London now he published this in his Savoy cocktail book in 1930 now Peter le who is a legendary former manager of the American Bar suggested adding a dash of egg white to this cocktail to help bring all of its components together but Joe Gilmore who is another former head barman to Savoy said the white lady was one of Laurel and Hardy favorite drinks but this brings me to supernatural the very first episode of the show where Sam and Dean Winchester of course meet the woman in white okay this is their first case together on the show and the woman of the white is a folk tale of course with has many variations and this is a type of spirit that has been said in all over Mexico in the United States she is a woman whose husband has been unfaithful in life and due to this she suffers temporary insanity and murders her children but out of the guilt she commits suicide now this curse is her spirit to roam waterways and back roads looking for unfaithful men to kill so let’s get into making the white lady and maybe I should have called this the woman in white instead of the white lady but the white lady is the name for the cocktail.
