25 ml Lemon Juice (freshly squeezed)
15 ml Simple Syrup
1 Egg White (or 15 ml of aquafaba for a vegan alternative)
Lemon Twist for garnish
Dry Shake: In a shaker, combine the Canadian Gin, lemon juice, simple syrup, and egg white. Shake vigorously without ice. This is called a dry shake and helps to emulsify the egg white, creating a smooth and frothy texture.
Add Ice and Shake Again: Add ice to the shaker and shake again vigorously. This second shake chills the drink and adds more froth.
Strain: Strain the cocktail into a chilled coupe or martini glass. The absence of ice in the glass ensures a pure, unadulterated sipping experience.
Watch the Color Change: Observe the beautiful color transformation, a signature trait of the Canadian Gin, especially when citrus is added.
Garnish: Garnish with a twist of lemon. The citrus oils from the twist not only add aroma but also enhance the drink's visual appeal.
