I'm not entirely sure where this name comes from. Our bartender created this lovely looking concoction and I guess I never questioned it. I was too busy savouring the sips.
This cocktail is fruity, frothy and refreshing. For the home bartender, I'd rate it at a 4/5 difficulty on an arbitrary scale. Partially because of the need to separate the egg white from the yolk, and partially because of the number of ingredients.
1.75oz Manchester Dry Gin
0.25oz Dry Vermouth
0.25oz Sweet Vermouth
0.25oz lemon juice
0.25oz rich syrup
0.5oz egg white
3-4 raspberries (fresh or frozen)
1 mint leaf (garnish)
Add all ingredients into a shaker tin with ice and shake it up! If you want extra froth, do a dry shake of the ingredients first (meaning, no ice) and then a regular shake second. Strain the liquid into a coupe glass, and garnish with a mint leaf.
Not only will you look classy, but you'll feel classy, and taste classy.
