The Story Behind The Strawberry Gin Sour

I love using fresh ingredients in cocktails. When I came across a particularly delicious-looking pint of strawberries, I decided to mix them into a cocktail!

The tart lemon pairs really well with the berries’ sweetness, and I added some Dry Orange Curacao to give it a tangy citrus zest. Using egg white brings all the flavors into harmony, and adds a decadently silky texture.


  • 1 ½ ounces gin
  • ½ ounce dry curacao
  • 1 ounce lemon juice
  • ¾ ounce simple syrup
  • 3-4 fresh strawberries, sliced
  • 1 egg white


  1. Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice.
  2. Shake vigorously to chill and combine ingredients.
  3. Strain out ice.
  4. Shake again to emulsify.
  5. Fine-strain into a cocktail glass.
  6. Garnish with cut strawberries. Enjoy!
