The Drive

The Drive cocktail with gin, lemon juice, simple syrup, raspberry preserves or puree, basil leaves, and egg white

The Drive is a clever cocktail that takes advantage of the powers of egg white and fruit preserves to produce cocktails with amazing textures. It’s a featured cocktail from Freud, an Austrian restaurant in New York City.

The original recipe calls for raspberry preserves, but we love it with just about any berry jam.

Ingredients

Instructions

Dry-shake all of the ingredients (that means without ice), in order to fully fluff of the egg white. Add ice and shake again. Double-strain through a fine mesh strainer into a small chilled coupe or cocktail glass. Garnish with a basil leaf and a fresh strawberry.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

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.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
