Lemon Sour

CHRISTIE SAYS: "Use a potato peeler to peel a long thin strip off your lemon. Roll this lemon twist over the cocktail and watch as the lemon oils from the peel fly over the cocktail. The peel of citrus fruit holds many powerful oils that unlock layers of flavour when used as a garnish. Pop the twist in the side of the glass for a pretty finishing touch." 

INGREDIENTS  

50ml Gordon's 0.0%

30ml Fresh lemon juice 

1 egg white or 20ml aquafaba  

15ml Simple syrup 

GARNISH 

Lemon twist to garnish 

METHOD   

Add 50ml Gordon's 0.0% to your shaker, along with 30ml fresh lemon juice and 15ml simple syrup. Add 1 egg white or 20ml aquafaba, then close your shaker and gently shake to activate the texture. Open the shaker, add plenty of ice, and give it a hard shake. Strain into a rocks glass over ice and garnish with a lemon twist.

Tanqueray 0.0% Clover Club

CHRISTIE SAYS: "Aquafaba is a great alternative to those who prefer not to use egg white in their drinks. It is the liquid from a can of chickpeas, believe it or not, doesn't add much flavour but does replicate the amazing fluffy texture of a sour. Give it a go!"

INGREDIENTS 

50ml Tanqueray 0.0%

25ml Fresh lemon juice 

15ml Raspberry Syrup or Grenadine 

1 egg white or 20ml aquafaba 

GARNISH

With fresh raspberries

METHOD

Add 50ml Tanqueray 0.0%, 25ml fresh lemon juice, 15ml of your syrup and a few fresh raspberries to a shaker. Add your egg white or 20ml aquafaba if you prefer not to use an egg. Close the shaker and gently shake it, being careful to hold the shaker at both ends. Open it up, add your ice, and shake for a second time, this time much more firmly. Double strain the cocktail through a fine strainer into a martini glass, and garnish with a fresh raspberry.
