3. If you’re more adventurous: How about the Egg Sour?

1.5 oz Spirit
0.75 oz Lemon Juice
0.50 oz Simple Syrup
Splash of Orange Liqueur
White of one Egg


Shake all ingredients together with ice. Shake again with ice and starin. The double shake helps with the emulsification of the egg and creates a more velvety texture. Some aren’t concerned with the second shake but those who are experienced with the Egg Sour, recommend it highly.
