Barrymore Room

Barrymore Room cocktail with bourbon, sweet vermouth, lime juice, simple syrup, egg white, and strawberry

Brad Farran’s Barrymore Room is a twist on the Clover Club’s namesake cocktail, rejiggered with a bourbon base instead of gin and strawberry in place of raspberry.

It’s a real winner: refreshing, juicy, fluffy, and eminently sippable. Muddled strawberry and egg white (or aquafaba) create a ridiculously smooth, velvety texture, while lime juice and bourbon (Farran recommends Elijah Craig 12 Year) cut through the sweetness and keep the drink grounded.

Having trouble measuring out such a small portion of egg white? Try beating it a little first, before you pour it into your jigger or measuring cup.

Ingredients

Instructions

Muddle the strawberry with simple syrup in a shaker. Add the remaining ingredients and shake without ice. Add ice and shake again (this technique is called a “dry shake”). Double-strain through a fine mesh strainer into a chilled cocktail or coupe glass.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
