Rosie Lee

A genuine example of cockney rhyming slang which has been adopted for light-hearted use by non-cockneys. The term seems to have originated at the turn of the 20th century, from a common proper name, and was rein-forced by the later fame of the American striptease artist Gypsy Rose Lee.
► A nice cup of rosie should do the trick.
