The Optimist


Serves 1
1 egg white
1½ oz (45 ml) Bombay Sapphire Gin
1 oz (30 ml) freshly squeezed orange juice
¾ oz (22 ml) freshly squeezed lemon juice
½ oz (15 ml) orgeat
ground cinnamon, for garnish


  1. Place a coupe or stemmed cocktail glass in the freezer. In a cocktail shaker, combine egg white, gin, orange and lemon juices and orgeat. Shake “dry” (without ice) to emulsify ingredients, then add cubed ice and shake vigorously to chill. Fine strain into chilled glass and garnish with a light dusting of ground cinnamon.
