Celebrate the 25th anniversary with a glass of ‘Lady in Red’


Celebrate the 25th anniversary of the first-ever Red Dress Run (August 12, 1988) with a drink that was concocted especially for our dear departed Lady in Red.  Here’s how to make it in The Lady in Red’s own words:

When I made it the first time for a Red Dress Run in Phoenix, I served it before the run. The problem was, every one wanted to stay in the parking lot & drink rather than run. I finally had to promise to have a full jug waiting at the On-In so that they would start! Anyway, here’s The Lady In Red- ‘the drink created in honor of The Lady In Red’ by 2 Hashers — one English & one German. It took them 2 years and much tasting to perfect it and to remember to write it down. It is described as, ‘Much like The Lady In Red, it is deceptively sweet and sinful!’

“Mix equal parts: Peach Schnapps, Lemon Vodka, Light Rum, Triple Sec, Raspberry Liquor With: (for a single drink) 1/2 cup raspberry lemonade and a splash of grenadine (for a jug) a pitcher of raspberry lemonade and a small bottle of grenadine.

“Serve: over ice or chilled with a slice of peach and a cherry (optional) and enjoy.”
