Magnificent Lady

Magnificent Lady cocktail with gin, lychee liqueur, lemon juice, rose syrup, and egg white

The Magnificent Lady, from the @cocktails_for_you Instagram account, is beautiful lychee cocktail with a heady floral fragrance and a gorgeously rich texture.

Rose syrup is an inspired pairing with lychee, and the egg white (or aquafaba, a vegan alternative) gives the drink a velvety feel, like a soft rose petal.

If you have a rose-forward botanical gin on hand (like Hendrick’s), do give it a whirl here!

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake all ingredients first without ice, and then again with ice added (that’s called a “dry shake”). Double-strain through a fine mesh strainer into a chilled small cocktail glass, and garnish with fresh or dried edible rose petals.

Game Changer

This is a game changer. When you're at the liquor store, thinking, "Yeah, ok fine what does Ancho Reyes liquor get me?" you open the app, look up Chile liquor and see that it gets you like 11 new cocktails. This is addictive, and indeed worth the price. We're having a blast under quarantine. While some of the ingredients are kind of anonymous, the icons look like the Campari bottle, and the descriptions often tell you if Campari will work or if you need Aperol. If you <3 cocktails, get this.
