The cocktail of the month is The Strega Sour, an original creation.
Strega is an Italian digestif that includes 70 herbs, including mint, and fennel. Saffron gives it its distinct yellow color. It has a viscous feel, is not too sweet with minty/coniferous notes (Wikipedia.com).
1 ½ oz. gin
¾ oz. lemon juice
½ oz. Strega liqueur
¼ oz simple syrup
½ oz egg white
Place all ingredients in a blender with a small handful of ice. Blend on high for 10-20 seconds or until frothy. Use Hawthorne strainer to strain into a sour glass. Drop a brandied cherry into the glass as a garnish.
