3 Best Egg White Cocktails

People usually get scared when they see this, they find it complicated but in reality it is an easy step. It’s just one step extra in the preparation of a nice tasty drink. 

This extra step is called “Dry shake” and this is what makes the egg white foam.

Keep in mind if you are vegan, vegetarian, or just don’t like eggs  you can exchange them with aquafaba.  

To cool down your cocktail we have a second shake that we call” wet shake” and basically you just add ice.
