Hello my loves! Can you guys believe it’s already Easter? This year is absolutely flying by. I was thinking about Easter and how if you celebrate you always have so many extra eggs left after dying them or after the Easter egg hunt. So, what better way to use those extra eggs than to make a fun cocktail? Egg white cocktails have become such a trendy drink in swanky cocktail bars in NYC so I thought it would be fun to share a recipe with you all. Before I do that, I have to give a huge shout out to my bestie Maggie for helping me come up with this recipe. She is a stellar bartender who is far more sophisticated and knowledgeable with her cocktails than I could ever dream of being. Plus, she gets an A+ for shaking this baby up so I could get cute blog posts shots at a bar!
GIN (your preference of brand)
ELDERFLOWER LIQUER (St. Germains is pretty popular and most liquor stores carry it)
SIMPLE SYRUP (you can buy this at the store or make it yourself, it’s only equal parts sugar and hot water)
In a tin shaker add all ingredients without ice
1.5 oz Gin
.5 oz elderflower liquer
.5 oz lemon juice (fresh squeezed)
.5 oz simple syrup
one egg white (leave out the yolk!)
•Vigorously shake up the ingredients without ice for about 30 seconds
•Add ice to the shaker and shake again vigorously for another 30 seconds (we are trying to get the egg white nice and frothy)
•Strain into your favorite glass. I would personally use a coupe glass, however we didn’t have one on hand so we improvised and used a martini glass.
For a fun Easter twist on this drink you could add one small drop of your favorite color dye to make a cute pastel concoction!
Hope you all loved this post and for anyone who celebrates Easter has a wonderful day with their family and friends! Hopefully a little buzzed and boozy egg white cocktails ;)!
