Silver Fizz Cocktail from Sepia Chicago

It's only halfway through the week, but sometimes Wednesday is the best time to kick back with a cocktail. Sepia Chicago sent us this lovely little concoction of gin, lemon sour, and egg whites, and it sounds like a frothy delight.

We've been very intrigued by egg whites in cocktails lately; Nora did a piece recently on the reemergence of this old-fashioned element in modern cocktails. Raw egg whites, properly shaken, give a thicky, foamy, milkshake quality to a cocktail. This Silver Fizz is a bright twist on the Ramos Gin Fizz, one of our favorite drinks.

How do you feel about egg whites in cocktails?

Silver Fizz

makes 1 cocktail

1 1/2 ounce Bombay Sapphire gin
1 1/2 ounce fresh lemon sour mix
1/2 ounce egg white (1 tablespoon)

Shake all ingredients in a cocktail shaker until foamy (at least five minutes!) and top with soda to taste.
