Tomorrow (October 20th) marks National Suspenders Day!
Though initially invented for men to wear with trousers cut too high to wear with a belt, we’ve seen countless examples–from the Rag & Bone runway to Annie Hall– of women sporting the two-strap look.
So to celebrate this remarkable holiday, we’re clipping on a trusty pair, putting on our best bowler’s hat, and mixing up an equally chic drink, a Pink Victrola.
We’ve provided our recipe below, and highly recommend you join in on the festivities….
1½ parts Hendrick’s Gin
1½ parts grapefruit juice
½ part lemon juice
½ part simple syrup
1 bar spoon real grenadine*
In a shaker, combine ingredients. Ice, shake and strain a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a grapefruit peel.
*Take 2 parts pomegranate juice to 1 part granulated sugar. Heat until sugar dissolves. Chill and serve.
