Silver King

There are many "Silver" cocktails, most of them having something to do with egg white and gin. The title of King goes to the one that uses excellent gin and fresh ingredients for a hands-down winner of a cocktail that is elegant and simple.

Monkey 47 is beautifully aromatic with 47 uncommon botanicals. It is very dry and light, so that an egg white cocktail can be both bracing and not weighed down by the notes of the spirit. A king, after all, is graceful.
  • 2 oz. gin (Monkey 47 used)
  • 1 oz. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. sugar syrup
  • egg white
  • dash Angostura bitters
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake remove the ice to shake the liquids and increase the foam. Pour into a chilled cocktail glass, preferably from a foot or more above the glass to encourage more egg white foam and to aerate the spirit.
