White Lady Cocktail Recipe

With its wonderful aroma and botanical notes of juniper and coriander, my senses found it hard to resist the ‘White Lady’ from Hayman’s Family Reserve Gin this Cocktail Friday.  Combined with the subtle citrus tastes of Cointreau and lemon, this could become one of my new favourites; perfect to enjoy with friends!


50ml Hayman’s Family Reserve Gin
25ml fresh lemon juice
25ml Cointreau
10ml sugar syrup
½ egg white
Lemon twist


First shake with ice and strain, then dry shake (without ice) and strain into a pre-chilled martini or coupe glass. Garnish with a lemon twist.
