Strawberry gin sour
Pretty but not lightweight, the strawberry gin sour makes the most strawberry season combining the sweet berries with gin, elderflower liqueur, lime juice and egg white. This recipe serves two.
Servings 2 cocktails
- 150 g | 1 cup strawberries
- 120 ml | 1/2 cup gin
- 60 ml | 1/4 cup elderflower liqueur St. Germain
- 2 tbsp fresh lime juice
- 1 tbsp egg white
- Lime zest and sugar to frost the glass optional
- Fresh strawberries or edible flowers to garnish
Fill a small shallow plate with granulated sugar and juice of a lime. Moisten the rim of two coupe glasses with a wedge of lime and then dip into the sugar to frost. Set aside.
Rinse the strawberries, hull them and cut into quarters.
Add to your cocktail shaker together with the gin, elderflower liqueur and lime juice.
Muddle the strawberries to extract as much juice as possible.
Add the egg white and dry shake (without ice) to create the froth.
Add plenty of ice and shake hard for 30 seconds.
Strain into the prepared glasses and garnish with a sliced strawberry or an edible flower.
