Spring Cocktail

Spring has arrived! We’ve finally made it through another cold and snowy New York winter. Now it’s time for everything to start lightening up, including our drinks.  If you’re like me then you’re craving spring cocktails. I tend to enjoy ones that are lifted with fresh citrus and herbs and backed up with a creamy edge. I just mixed this one up recently and I’m loving it!

Spring Fizz
2 oz London Dry Gin
.75 oz lemon
.75oz rosemary syrup
egg whites
plum bitters

The Spring Fizz has everything I want in a drink this time of year. It’s creamy with herbaceous rosemary syrup intermingling with the fragrant botanicals in the gin, and of course, it has the requisite, bright backbone of acidy to support the creamy texture. Mmm, it’s sooo good, you might have to restrain yourself from having one for breakfast J

Dry Shake and then Shake with ice and strain into a chilled coup. Garnish with a few drops of plum bitters.
