You can use any London Dry for this recipe. Jenson's is an excellent choice, or better still our Two Birds Cocktail Gin is designed for purpose, and it comes in a 200ml bottle at just £13!

Egg whites not only bring together flavors; they also give a cocktail a silky texture. The Aperol in the recipe doubles as light sweetener, so forget the syrup and go pro. Aromatic bitters are used as garnish to finish and add aroma.
