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!

Zesty cocktails

This blog post contains advertisement

When studying the art of photography zest shot / zesty cocktails is a great lesson. I have lately developed my photography skills by capturing expressed citrus zest in my cocktail’s pictures. Citrus zest provides the pictures and the cocktails with extra flavour, smell and grace.

Here are my advices for your zesty cocktails – Plan your cocktail in advance, so you have time to buy fresh nonorganic citrus fruits. You need nonorganic, “firm” and not too ripe citrus fruits to get the best zest results. I normally buy organic citrus whenever it’s possible, but for zest shots these are not ideal.

Wash the citrus fruit, peel and express that lovely citrus zest.

Try searching for #hitmewithyourzestshot on Instagram for more inspiration on zesty cocktails.
