Goodnight Moon

Airy egg white and floral, aromatic bitters come together in this frothy cocktail. If you can’t find white whiskey, you can substitute Bols genever for a different but equally delicious flavor profile.

1 egg white (pasteurized if you like)
1 tsp. Lustau East India Solera sherry
1/4 oz. Demerara syrup (1:1)
1/2 oz. fresh lemon juice
1/2 oz. J. Witty chamomile liqueur
1 1/4 oz. white whiskey
2 dashes In Bloom Bitters
Tools: mixing tin, Hawthorn strainer coil, shaker, strainer, fine strainer
Glass: coupe
Garnish: 3 drops In Bloom Bitters, 1 spanked fresh sage leaf

Place all ingredients except ice in a shaker. Drop in the coil from a Hawthorn strainer. Shake without ice for 5-10 seconds. Add ice and shake vigorously. Double strain into a chilled coupe and garnish.
