Vicki Butts (lazyme)
Gloria Vanderbilt was the inspiration for this frosty drink. During the fifties she was notorious for her love of the color pink, and would come in to the restaurant dressed entirely in her favorite rosy hue, with icy-white makeup. She once commissioned fifty miniature pink topiaries in porcelain pots, which I stayed up all night to finish. Ms. Vanderbilt’s son always enjoyed ordering his mom’s signature drink.
