In 1919, in London's Ciro's Club, bartender Harry MacElhone created the first White Lady, initially using white crème de menthe instead of gin. Four years later, when MacElhone was the owner of Harry's New York Bar, he modified the recipe, this time using equal parts gin, citrus liqueur and lemon juice.
