"If this cocktail has olive oil does that mean it's good for me?"
If you have not explored the elegant option of olive oil in your cocktails, read on! Olive Oil adds great flavor, aroma, and a silky mouthfeel to cocktails - not to mention beautiful visuals from the shiny droplets. Healthy? I'll leave that one up to you, but I'm sure there is merit to that concept.
Here is a recipe adapted from Marvel Bar in Minneapolis.
Combine gin, Cointreau, lemon juice, vanilla, and simple syrup and set aside.
Fill cocktail shaker 1/2 full with ice.
Add egg white and olive oil.
Shake at least 200 times - seriously! This is what creates that silky foam. Don't cheat!
Add gin mixture and shake until combined - about 20 seconds.
Strain into a flute or rocks glass.
