Garnish:

Skewered raspberries

How to make:

SHAKE first 5 ingredients with ice and strain back into shaker (no need to muddle raspberries). DRY SHAKE (without ice) and fine strain half the contents of the shaker into chilled glass (no ice in glass). POUR half the soda water into glass and then STRAIN the rest of the contents of the shaker into glass. Leave to stand until the white frothy head forms a clear line above the pale red base. Then POUR rest of soda water to raise the soufflé-like foaming head.

3 fresh Raspberries
1 1/2 fl oz Gin
3/4 fl oz Lemon juice (freshly squeezed)
1/2 fl oz Sugar syrup 'rich' (2 sugar to 1 water, 65.0°Brix)
1/2 fl oz Egg white
