Lately I have been working on some fun dessert cocktails with meringue.  I accidentally stumbled upon the idea of using Italian meringue to top on cocktails. Once I tried it, I was sold!

Some of my dessert cocktails are inspired by tasty well-known cakes such as Lemon Pie and “Grandpa’s beard”. “Grandpas beard” cake is a classic Danish cake with three layers: spongy cake, raspberry jam and meringue on top.

I have used less sugar/liquor in my dessert cocktails, as the meringue adds the perfect balance of sweetness.

Italian Meringue is particularly perfect to top on cocktails, as the meringue stays on top of the liquids. The eggs in Italian meringue are definitely NOT cooked, so if you are squeamish about using uncooked eggs in desserts, I suggest you use whipped cream instead.


Italian meringue recipe

I recommend using a KitchenAid/mixer for this recipe, as it will provide the best result.

100 g sugar
40 ml water
40 g pasteurized egg whites
Pinch vanilla sugar
Tiny pinch salt
(Tiny pinch of grated cinnamon for the cinnamon meringue)

1: Whip egg whites in a bowl, until its firm enough to turn the bowl upside down, while the egg whites stays in the bowl
2: Put sugar, water, salt & vanilla sugar in a sauce pan and gradually turn the heat up to medium / high, let it boil until it reach 116 degrees Celsius and remove the pan from the heat
3: Pour the sugar mass very slowly in the egg whites, only a little at a time, while constantly whipping
4: Keep whipping until the consistency is firm enough (have patience, it takes a little time; approx. 10 min)
5: Place it in the fridge for 2 hours before use.

Now you are ready to put the meringue in a piping bag and use it to top your cocktails.

Try these dessert cocktails recipes if you have a sweet tooth and like to play in the Sweet universe of cocktails.
