This is one of my husband’s favourite cocktails, and as a lover of all things almond (seriously, I’d live on marzipan alone if given the chance), I rather like it too. Not as sweet as you’d think due to the fresh lemon juice, and technically should be served in a rocks glass with additional ice, but I especially love these glasses so that’s how we had them this time around. If you look really closely you can see a cherry floating around in there….
30ml fresh lemon juice
15ml syrup from a jar of cocktail cherries
10ml egg white
1-2 cocktail cherries
- Fling all of the ingredients (bar the actual cherries) into a cocktail shaker with plenty of ice.
- Shake a lot. I mean a whole lot. For ages because you want to get the egg white nice and fluffy.
- Strain into your glass – preferably a rocks glass with yet more ice, and chuck in a cherry or two.
