STRAWBERRY GIN SOUR

Use a gin that’s not too overpowering, otherwise it might strangle the fruity taste. Brockman’s gin with its berry tones works well as does Classic Pink Gin.

If you don’t happen to have St. Germain elderflower liqueur in your drinks collection, then you could replace with elderflower cordial in a pinch.

The egg white is not essential, but it adds a bit of body and a very pretty froth. Fresh egg white creates more froth than pasteurised egg whites (from a carton).

HOW TO MAKE A STRAWBERRY GIN SOUR

Step 1. Fill a small shallow plate with granulated sugar and juice of a lime. Moisten the rim of two coupe glasses with a wedge of lime and then dip into the sugar to frost. Set aside.

Step 2. Rinse the strawberries, hull them and cut into quarters. Add to your cocktail shaker together with the gin, elderflower liqueur and lime juice. Muddle the strawberries to extract as much juice as possible. Add the egg white and dry shake (without ice) to create the froth. Have a taste – do you need to add a bit more lime juice?

Step 3. Add plenty of ice but don’t overfill the shaker as the egg froth has explosive tendencies. Shake hard for 30 seconds. Strain (or double strain) into the prepared glasses and garnish with a sliced strawberry or an edible flower. Enjoy!
