This riff on a classic Gin Sour, is like Persephone walking. Light, citrusy, and with a dreamy floaty froth of egg white on top, this pastel yellow cocktail is the perfect Spring cocktail. I used Hendrick’s special Midsummer Solstice Gin release, with hints of orange & rose, but any floral gin would work well.
Note: I know that you are probably second guessing my judgement with the addition of an egg white, but traditional cocktail ‘sours’ use egg whites to create that ethereal froth on top. If you’ve ever ordered a drink, and it had that frothy top – that’s an egg white! As long as you don’t let the egg sit around outside the shell too long, it won’t hurt you! If you are concerned, you can always use a pasteurized egg white instead.
