Eagle’s Dream

If you’ve ever looked at a cloud and wished you could soak it in gin and drink it, the Eagle’s Dream is for you! If you’ve got a really fancy, floral gin, now’s the time to use it.

We learned about this drink over at The Cocktail Spirit, Robert Hess’ educational resource on the proper making of classic drinks. This is where we learned about the “dry shake” technique for egg-white cocktails – shake first without ice, and then again with ice, to get a wonderfully velvety texture.

Ingredients

Instructions

Add all ingredients to a shaker and shake without ice. Add ice and shake again. Double-strain into a chilled, beautiful small glass.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
