This gin sour was named after Joseph Christmas Ives, a botanist who first explored the Grand Canyon.
2 oz. gin
¾ oz. fresh lime juice
½ oz. simple syrup (1:1)
1 egg white (pasteurized if you like)
6 mint leaves
Tools: shaker, strainer
Garnish: 5 dashes of Angostura bitters, mint
Combine all the ingredients in a shaker and dry shake (no ice). Add ice and shake vigorously. Strain into a chilled glass. Drop the bitters onto the surface and use a toothpick to create a star shape. Garnish with mint.
