This is a cocktail with a rich silky texture thanks to the cream and egg white. A classic that everyone should try... yet many people shy away from it. Some because of the uncooked egg white - to that we say PFFT! Others are intimidated by the lengthy shake they think it requires yeah not really. The key is to shake twice one dry shake with the spring from a Hawthorne strainer - this gets the cocktail really frothy, really quickly. Then a traditional wet shake with ice to cool it down and continue frothing.
Even if this cocktail takes extra time and effort it's worth it. Quality can't be rushed, so take your time and enjoy.
