Love Cocktail

This is one drink that seems to live up to its name pretty well. It has a great fruity flavor and color and an awesome pink egg foam that is fun to sip through. The coupe glass really does the foam justice, too.

The thing about sloe gin is that it can get sickeningly sweet pretty quickly. Lemon juice balances that, and raspberry syrup gives the sweetness another direction that takes your taste buds away from that Icee syrup taste (you know, that red slush drink at amusement parks). So, while this was a sweet dessert drink, and not too strong, I still appreciated the thickness of the mouthfeel and the tickle of foam bubbles that seem to slosh around in corners of the rounded glass like pink caviar when the drink is empty. This cocktail is a gooey kind of love.
  • 2 oz. sloe gin
  • 1/2 oz. lemon juice
  • 3/4 oz. raspberry syrup
  • 1 egg white
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with no ice and shake until well mixed and foamy. Add ice and shake until cool. Pour into a chilled cocktail glass (coupe glass preferred.)
