Vigorous shaking required. Top tip: rinse your glass with absinthe to add a little something extra.
Double shot (50ml) of Poetic License Gooseberry & Elderflower Gin
A shot (25ml) of sweet vermouth
Half a shot (12.5ml) of lemon juice
Half a shot of egg white (or use aquafaba for a vegan-friendly alternative)
A bar spoon (10ml) of sugar syrup
A bar spoon of elderflower cordial
A splash of absinthe
Add all ingredients (bar the absinthe) to a boston tin filled with ice and shake vigorously to froth it up. Double strain into a chilled coup glass rinsed with absinthe (add the absinthe to the glass and swirl it around to ensure the whole inside and edge of the rim is coated) – don’t worry this won’t get you hammered, it just adds a slight je ne said quoi to the drink.
Cut your lemon peel into a long, thin strip, grab each end between your fingers and twist them in the opposite direction to create a tight spiral – let go and you should have a fairly loose twist, pop this on the side of the glass.
