If you are reading this around early February then be sure to mark this one down for a fun Valentine’s Day treat! One trick is to use Peychaud’s bitters to make a heart on the white silky foam for a festive touch! Check out our other Valentine’s Day treats here!
To make the simple syrup, combine equal parts of sugar and water in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir until sugar is dissolved and let cool.
In a cocktail shaker add egg white and fresh lemon juice. Shake without ice vigorously for 10 seconds. Add vodka, pomegranate juice, simple syrup, and ice. Shake until chilled. Strain into a martini glass. Garnish with a few drops of Peyshaud bitters and optional rose petals. Cin Cin!
Need it to be vegan? Aquafaba, or chickpea brine, works as a great egg white substitute in cocktails for a frothy texture. Just whip it up, or use it as a 1:1 substitute and you get a creamy foam similar to egg whites. It’s a plant-based alternative, making it suitable for vegans or those with egg allergies. Add a touch of aquafaba to your favorite cocktail recipes for a silky and frothy mix that elevates your drinking experience. It works great in this vodka pomegranate sour!
