White lady and gin fizz – drinks using egg white

This blog post contains advertisement

White lady and gin fizz are delicious classic cocktails you should try if you haven’t, here I have made five modern variations that I think you will love.

White lady and gin fizz are both popular and well known IBA official cocktails. Both using egg whites, which sits on top of the cocktail like a silky smooth and fluffy cloud.

Tip! if you dont like egg whites in your cocktails, you can leave them out. Vegan ? substitute with alternate like aquafaba. I prefer to use egg whites from fresh organic eggs, but pasteurised egg whites works just as well.

Cheers & enjoy!

Gin basil smash – smashing cocktail recipes

This blog post contains advertisement

Gin basil smash

A modern gin cocktail. Originally named Gin Pesto, created by Jörg Meyer in the summer of 2008.

The original recipe states the basil has to be muddled, which also gives it a more vibrant and green color. I prefer to give the basil a good bash, and shake it with all the other ingredients. This way you’ll have a more “bright” and fresh tasting cocktail. By muddling, the cocktail won’t take as much color from the basil compared to bashing the basil.

Regardless of the basil method used, I’m confident that you´ll be satisfied with the outcome, because it’s a really delicious cocktail.

Tip !

If the green color frightens you, then try to use red basil.

In doubt about how much basil to use ?

Then always use more basil.
