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.

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
