Electric Current Fizz
A gin distilled in Plymouth, England. It is less dry than the more common London Dry gin, mainly due to more root ingredients that soften the juniper flavor.
The most common fruit juice used in cocktails. This citrus juice is about 6% acid; pure citric acid. Lemon juice should be used the day it is squeezed, some like it freshly squeezed and others like it a few hours old.
A syrup made from dissolving granulated sugar (sucrose) in water. Regular simple is made by combining 1:1 sugar:water by mass, rich simple is 2:1 sugar:water by mass although only 1.5 times as sweet as regular. We always use 1:1 syrup unless otherwise noted in the recipe itself.
You know what eggs are. In cocktails, eggs are used for their foaming properties, giving the drink a rich and creamy texture. The eggs proteins form a 'net' that traps air and liquid extremely well; for this reason, drinks that contain eggs are shaken. They are also used for egg washing, a type of booze washing. Some cocktails use only the egg white (fizzes) and some use the whole egg or only the yolk (flips). There are common non-egg substitutes out there, check out insta-foam
Water into which carbon dioxide gas under pressure has been dissolved, creating a fizzy texture. We treat soda water, club soda, seltzer and sparkling water the same.
A fermented liquid condiment of complex mixture originally created by the Worcester chemists John Wheeley Lea and William Henry Perrins. Known for its strong salty and umami flavors.
Also known as chili sauce or pepper sauce, this is a condiment, seasoning, or salsa made from chili peppers and other ingredients. Used for its spicy flavor due to the organic compound capsaicin.
Often used to rim a glass for cocktails or made into a solution to add to the liguid itself in order to balance the flavors. Table salt or common salt is a mineral composed primarily of sodium chloride (NaCl), a chemical compound belonging to the larger class of salts; salt in its natural form as a crystalline mineral is known as rock salt or halite.
Pepper gets its spicy heat mostly from piperine derived both from the outer fruit and the seed. Black pepper contains between 4.6% and 9.7% piperine by mass, and white pepper slightly more than that. Used in classic cocktails like the Blood Mary and everything under that family.
Separate the egg into white and yolk. Add the egg white and all remaining ingredients, except the soda and egg yolk, to a shaker without ice and dry-shake. Add ice and shake again until chilled. Strain into a frozen fizz glass and top with soda. Place the egg yolk in a shot glass and season it with Worcestershire sauce, a bit of tabasco, salt and pepper to taste; and optionally a squeeze of lime juice. Shoot the yolk and enjoy the fizz. #doubledrink #shot #shake #straight
