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.

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
