Check out what’s on offer in the liquor department at BWS and Liquorland.

Method

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

Tips

  • Multiply the ingredients if you're making this cocktail to share.
  • 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.
  • For a vegan or egg allergy version, use approximately 35ml of chickpea juice instead of the egg white to create an equally foamy vegan version! (*Quantity for one drink.)
