Gin Sour With Egg Whites – Classic Cocktail Recipe

The Gin sour with egg whites isn’t as well know as the Whiskey sour or Pisco Sour but it is just as good. Adding eggs to alcohol is as old as cocktails themselves, and while it may sound odd to us today it adds a nice creamy sweetness to the drink. Don’t think of fried eggs or scrambled eggs think of a lemon meringue pie instead. Egg whites whipped into a meringue and added to cocktails proved to be so popular back in the day that many people preferred their sours with egg whites.
