Honey, lemon and orange flower water strike a delicate balance in this vodka cocktail from Clay in New York City.
1½ oz. vodka
1 oz. fresh lemon juice
¾ oz. honey syrup (2:1)
2-3 dashes orange flower water
1 oz. egg white (pasteurized, if you like)
2-3 mint leaves
Tools: shaker, strainer, fine strainer
Garnish: Angostura bitters
Shake the first 5 ingredients in a shaker without ice until the egg white is emulsified. Add the mint and hard shake with ice. Double strain into a coupe, then add a few drops of Angostura bitters drops on the top.
