Serving: 1

  • 1 1/2 ounces gin, preferably Beefeater
  • 1/2 ounce Pierre Ferrand dry curaçao
  • 1/2 ounce lemon syrup (see Editor's Note)
  • 1/2 ounce lemon juice
  • 1 egg white
  • soda water

Garnish: lemon zest

  1. Combine all ingredients (except the soda) in a shaker and shake without ice.
  2. Add ice to the shaker and shake vigorously until well chilled.
  3. Strain into a Collins glass without ice and top with soda.
  4. Zest lemon over the top of the drink to garnish.
Editor's Note

To make lemon syrup, combine 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water and the zest of one lemon in small saucepan over low heat and simmer until sugar is dissolved. Let cool, stir in 1/3 cup lemon juice and fine strain into a jar or bottle. Will last up to a month in the fridge.
