The Christmas Lady Cocktail Recipe

The Christmas Lady was crafted by my good friend Sara Scroggins, who is a professional mixologist from The Basin restaurant in Saratoga, CA. What makes this cocktail so delicious is the homemade Rosemary Simple Syrup that adds a fresh herbal note of holiday flavor.

Instructions
For Christmas Lady
  1. Combine all ingredients together in mixing glass.
  2. Dry shake (shake without ice) all ingredients for 30 seconds. This makes the egg white frothy and creates a silky texture in the cocktail.
  3. Add ice and shake once more. Strain into Crate and Barrel’s Camille Champagne Coupe glass. Garnish with a sprig of rosemary.
For the Rosemary Simple Syrup
  1. Blanch sprigs of fresh rosemary in boiling water for 1 minute. Stop cooking by dunking sprigs in an ice bath.
  2. Pick rosemary needles off of the branches and add to blender with sugar, and 1 cup boiling water.
  3. Blend until ingredients are incorporated. Pour through a fine mesh strainer. Bottle and store.
  4. If you don’t like rosemary and you want to use a more delicate herb, such as mint or basil, only blanch for 30 seconds.
