Servings: 1


  • 2 ounces gin
  • 1 ounce lemon juice freshly squeezed
  • 1/4 ounce Licor 43
  • 1/2 ounce extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 large egg white pasteurized
  • 1/4 ounce simple syrup
  • 2 medium ice cubes


  • To a cocktail shaker, add the gin, licor 43, olive oil, lemon juice, simple syrup and egg white.
  • "Dry shake" the ingredients for 30 seconds.
  • To the shaker, add the 2 ice cubes and continue shaking vigorously until the ice is fully dissolved and you can no longer hear it clinking.
  • Pour the contents from the shaker into a coupe, martini, or wine glass.
  • Allow the foam to rise to the top and serve immediately.


  • If you do not have Licor 43, you may substitute with another vanilla-flavored liqueur.  Vanilla extract can also be used, in a pinch.
  • When using egg whites in cocktails, it is important to do a "dry shake", which is a shake without ice, in order to create the frothy texture of the egg white. Once that is done, follow up with a second shake with ice as noted above.
  • Extra virgin olive oil should be used for this recipe.  I would advise against using other types of oils, however, feel free to experiment with flavor infused extra virgin olive oils.
