Hotel Georgia | Cocktail Party

Hotel Georgia

Master mixologist Gaz Regan dug up this gem from Ted Saucier’s 1951 recipe book Bottoms Up. Like most drinks containing egg white (or aquafaba, a vegan alternative), you should “dry shake” – that is, shake the ingredients without ice – for a good 15-30 seconds before adding ice and shaking again. Egg white is difficult to incorporate, so the extra dry-shaking time gives it a chance to properly emulsify.



Dry shake all ingredients without ice for 15 seconds, then add ice and shake again. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass or coupé, and garnish with an orange twist.

I love this app

Super practical, informative, easy to use, even inspiring for lovers of cocktails or just those curious to try a few recipes over time and keep an inventory of favorite recipes handy. Updated fairly judiciously, thankfully, so it isn’t cluttered up with unproven concoctions resulting in an overwhelmingly-sized library with too many ridiculous or middling cocktails. Attractive, welcoming, well-designed UI.
