Violet Lady Cocktail

Servings: 1

This striking cocktail gets its color from crème de violette and a creamy boost from an egg white shaken into the mix. The subtle, sweet perfume of violet is a perfect complement to herby gin. Together, they taste like the height of sophistication


  • 2 oz. gin
  • 1 large pasteurized egg white
  • 1 oz. crème de violette
  • 2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
