The Eagle`s Dream Cocktail is a light and delicious gin cocktail with a frothy texture which is just perfect for brunch. Robert Hess adds some great advice on dry shaking a cocktail by using the spring of a hawthorne strainer. This little trick is adding a thick froth to cocktails that use egg white and require a dry shake without adding dilution.
How to make the Eagel`s Dream Cocktail
1 1/2 oz (45 ml) dry gin
1/2 oz ( 15 ml) The Bitter Truth Violet Liqueur
1/2 oz (15 ml) fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp. granulated sugar
1 egg white
Dry shake without ice. (Tip: remove the spring from a Hawthorne strainer and add it to your mixing tin before you dry shake. This will help to emulsify the ingredients and create a lot of body.) Then remove the spring and add ice. Strain into cocktail glass.
