Gin Sour: Bitter Apparation

This simple gin sour gets a warming spice from the addition of allspice liqueur.

1½ oz. gin
¾ oz. fresh lime juice
¾ oz. simple syrup (1:1)
1 tsp. allspice liqueur
1 fresh egg white (pasteurized if you like)
Tools: shaker, strainer, fine strainer
Glass: cocktail or dessert
Garnish: spritz of black walnut bitters

Add all the ingredients to a shaker and shake without ice until frothy. Add ice and shake again, then double strain into the glass. At the Spirit Room, bartenders spray the black walnut bitters over a stencil to create the eye design.
