A Toast to Glamour and Grace


  • 1.5 oz dry gin
  • 0.5 oz applejack
  • 0.75 oz fresh lemon juice
  • 1 egg white
  • a splash of grenadine
  • cherry for garnish


  1. In a shaker add ice, gin, applejack, lemon juice, egg white, grenadine, and shake very well.
  2. Strain into chilled coupe glass and serve.


Ideally, you shake the ingredients in the shaker without the ice at first, to foam up the egg, and then add the ice to chill. This results in a bit more foam, but in our opinion it's not enough of a difference to warrant shaking twice.

Whichever way you decide to shake (dry and then wet, or just wet) the shaker builds up a lot of pressure and will pop open if you don't hold onto it very tightly.

Tips & Tricks

Experiment with different types of gin to alter the flavor profile. Opt for a floral gin for a more aromatic drink or a barrel-aged gin for a richer, more complex taste.

Infuse the cocktail with herbs like basil, thyme, or rosemary to add depth and complexity to the flavor profile. Simply muddle the herbs in the shaker before adding the other ingredients.
