Eagle’s Dream

Eagle's Dream cocktail with creme de violette and egg white

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.

Instructions

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!
