The Brandy Alexander is a well known retro cocktail, but…
Midori sours are popular because they are sweet and easy to drink – but most places don’t make them very well. Using fresh juices instead of a bland, premade “sour mix” makes a huge difference and will turn an ok drink into a great one. Adding egg white to the shaker gives the drink a light, foamy top. If you’re not comfortable with using a fresh egg white, you can get a carton of pasteurized egg whites from the grocery store which are totally safe to eat raw and are easy to measure.
