The steps below use a soda siphon (or whipping siphon), this is optional. If you don’t have one, you can stir over ice until chilled. Combine all ingredients except lemon peel in a soda siphon.

Then open the siphon and pour the cocktail into a chilled glass. Garnish with a lemon peel. #stir #siphon #straight
