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.
If you don’t have raspberry preserves, you can puree fresh or thawed-from-frozen raspberries instead. It won’t have quite the same gorgeous mouthfeel as it would with a jam or preserves, but it’s still an incredible drink.
If you prefer the flavor of blackberries, they make a lovely substitute for raspberries.
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.
