We finally thawed out after the Snowmageddon of 2021 in Texas. We were cold and only had heat and electricity for 50% of the time from Tuesday through Thursday, but we are fine and our house pipes made it through. We are grateful for all of the well wishes and concern from all who reached out to us.
Staying on point with our RED theme we have another great little cocktail to share with you. Technically this cocktail is more of a pink color, but pink is in the red tone family, right? The Carpano Botanic Bitter Fizz is a light drink made with vodka, orange liqueur, Carpano Botanic Bitter, fresh lemon juice and egg white.
To make the cocktail place vodka, Carpano Bitter, orange liqueur and lemon juice in a dry shaker with the egg white of one egg. Dry shake for a few seconds. Then add a scoop of ice to the shaker and shake vigorously for 20-30 seconds. Garnish with a cherry and serve. Luxardo cherries are the best to garnish this cocktail. We didn’t have any on hand. (We just made it through the winter storm of the century… remember?)
Some of you may be worried by the egg white. The egg white gives this cocktail a pretty little froth on the top. However, there is always a risk when consuming raw eggs.
As we mentioned above, this cocktail is light. Because of the bitter, the flavor is not overly sweet which helps it pair well with a breakfast or light lunch. Since it has a beautiful pink color, this cocktail would make a great impression at a bridal brunch/luncheon or any gals’ get-together! We are going to keep this in mind for any future AC (After COVID) ladies lunches that Rhonda decides to host!
Stay warm this week and hang in there. We have almost made it to March!
