Jaleo’s cocktail uses vegan substitute for egg whites

That light, creamy foam that sits atop cocktails such as whiskey sours and gin fizzes usually comes from egg whites. As a vegan alternative, some cocktails call for aquafaba, the brine from a can of chickpeas. Aerating the brine in a cocktail shaker whips it into a thick foam. Jaleo’s Alcino cocktail combines the froth with a green cocktail made with gin, basil and celery bitters. Don’t worry, it doesn’t taste like chickpeas.

Ingredients

  • 2 ounces Gin Mare
  • ½ ounce Benedictine
  • ¾ ounce raw simple syrup
  • ¾ ounce lime juice
  • ½ ounce aquafaba (the brine from a can of chickpeas)
  • 4 ounces basil leaves
  • ½ teaspoon Bitter Truth celery bitters

Garnish

  • 1 basil leaf

Directions

Combine all ingredients in a shaker and add four big, solid ice cubes. Shake vigorously in a circular motion. Do this for longer than usual, until the ice is almost diluted. Expect a creamy, frothy head in the glass. Fine-strain the contents into a 7-ounce sherry glass and garnish with a small basil leaf on top of the drink.
