When my friends over at Wild Hibiscus sent me some lovely gifts which included a jar of Honey Ridge Farms' Honey Créme, Spiced ...
2 oz Hendrick's Gin
3/4 oz Fresh Lemon Juice
3/4 oz Spiced Honey Simple Syrup (ratio 2:1)
1 FRESH Egg White
2 Dashes Lavender Bitters
GARNISH: Lemon Twist, Lavender Sprig
TOOLS: Cocktail Shaker
Chill the glass in the freezer. To make the Spiced Honey Simple Syrup, warm 2 tablespoons of the spiced créme honey with 1 tablespoon of water in the microwave for 15 seconds, stir until the honey is dissolved and allow to cool.
Add the Hendrick's Gin, lemon juice, spiced honey simple syrup and egg white to a cocktail shaker without ice (dry shake) and shake for 30 seconds to emulsify the egg into the cocktail and aerate to create a foam. Add ice and shake to chill.
Strain into a chilled glass, tap a few extra bitters on top, garnish and serve.
