While these egg white cocktails don’t taste different from standard drinks, the added proteins bring a wonderfully rich and silky foam that’s to die for.
And all it takes is a little elbow grease.
Psst! Wanna know a secret?
Egg whites are the key to taking your mixology skills to the tip-top level!
Thanks to this one simple addition, you can jazz up a traditional Sidecar or old-school whiskey sour with a few flicks of your wrist. (Okay, you’ll need to shake it!)
But no matter which of these egg white cocktails you choose, they’re guaranteed to impress.
Easy White Lady Cocktail and More!
If you’re not a big cocktail drinker, chances are you’re thinking: why?
Why add egg whites to your much-beloved whiskey sour? Why add egg whites to any drink, for that matter?
Is it just for the extra protein? Surely there are better ways to get your daily dose of that?
You’re right about that. While egg whites do add protein, that’s not why most people put them in their drinks.
Instead, they do it because it makes cocktails look amazing.
It requires two minutes of your time and doesn’t take anything away from the flavor.
So, what do you have to lose? Give it a try the next time you want to jazz up your drink.
You can’t have a truly fizzy gin fizz without adding an egg white. That’s just a fact.
The egg white is what gives it its that signature fizzy, frothy appearance.
You can get a moderate amount of bubbles with the soda water. However, egg white is a must-have if you want your gin fizz to look spectacular.
Are you looking for something a little more tart and elegant? Then, give the Clover Club cocktail a try.
It’s a gorgeous pink drink with a bright, berrylicious flavor.
Calling for just four ingredients and about five minutes, it’s a classy drink that’s sure to turn heads beside the pool.
Aperol is an acquired taste, but I love it. It’s zingy, zesty, citrusy, and a bit herby.
But instead of the usual spritz, you’ll spruce up this Aperol-based drink with tart lemon juice and a frothy egg white.
It’s a bubbly treat that’ll tickle your taste buds and your nose.
Stop what you’re doing and try to say Flower Power Sour five times fast. Are you tongue-tied yet?
Fortunately, this drink is much easier to make than it is to speed-speak.
Simply mix the six ingredients in a cocktail shaker, then shake well, strain, shake again, strain again, and voila.
You’ll have a delicious, mostly sour, and slightly sweet drink in no time.
I love its gorgeous, sunrise-like appearance. It’s a genuinely lovely drink that tastes even better than it looks.
It smells really nice, too!
The traditional Sidecar recipe gets a facelift with this fizzy recipe.
Like the whiskey sour above, this drink tastes the same as it always does. The only difference is the egg white makes it look much lovelier.
So if the Sidecar’s your go-to, ask the bartender to pretty it up for you next time.
7. Tequila Sour
This tequila sour is one potent drink. And here’s a little forewarning: if you don’t like tequila, you won’t enjoy it.
You’ll add lemon or lime juice and agave nectar to the cocktail. However, it still tastes strongly of tequila.
All the extra stuff does is help it go down a little more smoothly, though.
If you like frothy, tequila-heavy drinks, you’ll love it. If tequila isn’t your thing, you might want to look elsewhere.
This isn’t your standard Amaretto sour.
It’s much more robust, for one thing. Additionally, its brighter, tarter taste is sure to catch your attention.
Even if you don’t usually like Amaretto sours, don’t dismiss this recipe right away.
Try it just once, and you may find it surprises you.
With its lovely layered appearance and exciting taste, this drink is not one to be missed.
It combines whiskey and red wine with lemon juice and simple syrup. (Maple syrup works, too.)
The result is a dry, bright cocktail with a slight twang of something sweet. It’ll cool your skin and warm your belly at the same time.
Plus, it’s impossible not to appreciate the distinct white, red, and yellow layers. So if you want a drink that turns everyone’s head, this is it.
Do you avoid whiskey sours because they’re too, well, sour? If so, this recipe might be the one for you.
According to the recipe’s author, it’s the whiskey drink for “non-whiskey people.”
Its taste is sweet, fruity, and unbelievably light. And it goes down so smooth; you’ll hardly believe you’re drinking whiskey.
And the toasted cinnamon simple syrup you’ll add? OMG. It’s so good!
Give this one a try, and I promise you won’t be disappointed. Even if you don’t like whiskey, it’s a must-make.
11. Pisco Sour
The pisco sour is an elegant white drink that would look lovely on any formal table.
You’ll need five ingredients and about five minutes to whip one up.
It’s slightly dry and herby, with a sharp tanginess that’s hard to describe. Nevertheless, it’s a crisp, biting drink that’ll make you sit a little straighter after you finish.
It may not be the drink for everyone, but give it a shot. You never know; it could become a new favorite.
Vibrant, slightly sweet, and delightfully zesty, this one looks like a million bucks. You’ll love this fantastically fizzy, four-minute cocktail.
It features a brilliant red hue and a ton of bubbles. If any cocktail could leave you with a ‘milk mustache’ (sans milk), this one would do it.
Check it out the next time you want something with a wallop of bold flavor.
Ah, the White Lady. Here’s another enchanting cocktail that looks stunning on every table.
It’s lovely enough for formal events but easy enough to make for casual occasions.
Its blend of gin and Cointreau makes it a deceptively strong drink with a crisp, invigorating flavor.
It’s very citrusy and bright, and while it’s on the dry side, it’s not bitter. Instead, it’s…brisk.
I know that’s not a word used to describe the taste, but in this case, it fits.
It’s a brisk, zingy drink that’ll delight your tongue and taste buds and leave you wanting more.
