- California Wine Month begins
The Strength and Honor Cocktail
- 1 1/2 Ounce London dry gin
- 1/2 Ounce homemade honey syrup
- 1/2 Ounce fresh lemon juice
- 1 egg white
We can't even begin to start toasting all the tremendous athletes and their medals in the London Olympic Games: swimmer Missy Franklin, gymnast Jordyn Weiber, gymnast Gabby Douglas, the list goes on and on. While we know that some of these athletes are well underage, there's no shame in toasting an Olympic-themed drink to them. Thanks to the Forty Four at Royalton in New York City, the appropriately named Strength and Honor cocktail uses gin and homemade honey syrup.
In a shaker combine egg white, honey, lemon, and gin. Shake with one ice cube, strain into a sour glass. Top with a touch of club soda. In a separate glass, combine a drop of food coloring in an ounce of simple syrup and stir. Use an eye dropper to decorate the foam of the drink as you wish.
