Do you have a case of the Mondays? I think the cure is a nice well-balanced cocktail.
The White Lady is a classic and I’ve been wanting to make it for a while now. However, until I found a video of Rachel Maddow making it on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, I didn’t realize I already had all the ingredients to make the cocktail at home. I finally made it yesterday afternoon and it almost made me forget the fact that Monday was right around the corner. Almost.
The White Lady
What You’ll Need:
- 2 oz Gin
- .5 oz Cointreau
- .5 oz Fresh lemon juice (I upped it to .75 oz because I like the tartness)
- 1 Fresh egg white
What to Do:
Add all the ingredients to your cocktail shaker. Dry shake the mixture first (this really gets the egg white nice and frothy), then add ice and shake it again. Strain into a coupe or cocktail glass and enjoy.
