Bachelor Pad Cocktail

This uniquely delicious variation on a gin sour, the Bachelor Pad is sweet, frothy, and citrusy. The backbone of the Bachelor Pad is a good gin, preferably one with a floral character and some citrus notes, like Bruicchladdich’s “The Botanist”. Cream sherry, a sweeter, darker, and more luscious variety of the classic Spanish fortified wine, along with poppy seed syrup, brings a sweet, nutty dimension to the cocktail. Finally, an egg white is added to lighten and froth up the drink.
