Apricot Lady Cocktail

By Robert Hess

In this episode of The Cocktail Spirit, Robert answers a viewers question about using egg whites in cocktails. Specifically, he discusses health concerns as well as how egg whites enhance or change the texture of a cocktail and how to incorporate them. To demonstrate how to incorporate an egg white into a cocktail, Robert dry shakes all the ingredients before adding ice and shaking the Apricot Lady Cocktail briefly to dilute and chill.

Recipe

Ingredients

1 oz white rum (Robert uses Caña Brava from The 86 Co.)

1 oz The Bitter Truth Apricot Liqueur

1/2 oz fresh lime juice

1/4 oz orange Curaçao

1/2 to 1 egg white

Instructions

Vigorously dry shake all ingredients to fully emulsify egg white.

Remove strainer spring, if used, and add ice to mixing tin.

Shake to chill and dilute.

Strain into a chilled cocktail coupe.

I am looking forward to trying this cocktail. Robert, in the video you mention that you use lime juice, but in the list of ingredients you say lemon. Of course, I can make it both ways and see which I prefer….but at least you know someone is paying attention to what you say!

Thanks for your detailed response Robert. That should put anyone’s mind at ease on the question of egg whites in cocktails. I was asked once at a bar if I minded egg white in a drink I orered. That was a nice courtesy but made me wonder about it. I’ll try the Apricot Lady soon, with egg white of course. Cheers!
