Little Lion Cocktail

This herbaceous cocktail, inspired by the classic Lion’s Tail, brings genever into the spotlight.

1¾ oz. genever
¼ oz. pimento (allspice) dram
¾ oz. rosemary simple syrup
¾ oz. fresh lemon juice
1 fresh egg white (pasteurized, if you like)
Tools: shaker, strainer
Glass: coupe
Garnish: 5 drops Angostura bitters

In a shaker, combine all of the ingredients and dry shake to emulsify the egg white. Add ice, shake again to chill, then strain into a chilled glass and top with bitters.

Rosemary Syrup: Bring 1 cup of water to a boil. Add 4-5 rosemary sprigs, then turn off the heat. Let steep for 4-5 minutes then add 1 cup of white sugar. Strain, and keep refrigerated when not in use.
