The Wonky Moskin

At its most basic, The Wonky Moskin is a Gin Sour, which is a mixed cocktail said to predate Prohibition. This specific rendition Bar Pleiades bartender Cameron Bogue called an egg sour. The traditional ingredients are simple: gin, lemon juice, sugar, orange slice, maraschino cherry, and an egg white. But Cameron made a concerted effort to pay great attention and complicate each element in his homage.

Ingredients

2 ounces infused Beefeater Gin

¾ ounce Lemon Juice

½ ounce Red Wine Syrup

¼ ounce Lemongrass Distillate

1 egg white

Directions

Shake hard and strain up

Cocktail Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Cocktail Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
