When you suspect you're done shaking this creamy gin drink, think again. You've only just begin. Keep shaking. Then shake some more. It's a beautiful cocktail, but you have to shake that juice and cream and egg white like crazy to get the right silky texture. Don't give up, it's worth it!

This is the same recipe given to me 30 years ago by a friend and I will vouch for the fact that it's really really good! I always mix it up in a blender rather than using a cocktail shaker. Read More

Yuuum! Although I made some changes due to diet and ingredient availability, it turned out great and this is a recipe I will definitely make again in the future. The changes I made were: subbing some no-sugar-added-cranberry juice for lemon and lime, and swapping sugar out for 1/2 tsp stevia, swapping gin for vodka, and also swapping half & half with heavy cream. I also used a blender and added the ice and soda at the end to prevent it from getting slushy and going flat. Read More

One of my all time faves. I don't add the egg white because I think it's yucky I just shake it for longer and I still get the foam. Read More
