Hotel Georgia

Hotel Georgia cocktail with gin and orgeat

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.

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.
