Lychee Orange Blush

Serves 1

15ml lychee liqueur

30ml gin

15ml lemon

30ml orange

3 shakes of bitters

2 fresh lychees (peeled, halved & seeded)

1 egg white

ice

 

How to make this Lychee Orange Blush 

Place all the ingredients except the ice into a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously for about 90 seconds. Fill the shaker with ice and shake vigorously for another 90 seconds. Strain the cocktail into a coupe cocktail glass, shaking out the last bit of foam, and garnish with a fresh lychee. Serve immediately. 

 

Kitchen Notes: When shaking with egg white, the more you shake, the more of a creamy foam you will create. Shaking creates air within the proteins, giving it a smooth, professional finish.

Vegan/ Egg Allergy Version: Use approx. 35ml of chickpea juice instead of the egg white to create an equally foamy vegan version! (*Quantity for one drink).
