Cooks notes: you could use lemon here as a sub for lime. The bitterness of the lemon works so well in this drink to give it a fresh, sharp kick. You could make a simple sugar syrup here, but to save on time, shaking it up in a jar until the sugar dissolves works well.
Equipment needed: cocktail shaker, serving glass
1. Shake the sugar and water together in a jar with the lid on until the sugar has dissolved.
2. Make a lime peel to garnish by using a peeler to take a thin strip off the outside of the lime, twist and set aside.
3. Add the sugar syrup to a shaker along with the whiskey, lime, ice and egg white. Shake until it becomes frothy.
4. Add a bit of ice to a chilled glass and pour the cocktail through a strainer over the ice. Include some of the froth as well on the top if it doesn’t make its way through the strainer.
5.Top with the lime peel to serve.
