1/4 cup (2 ounces) gin
2 tablespoons (1 ounce) heavy cream
1 large egg white
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon simple syrup
4 drops orange blossom water

This is an authentic recipe. You'll need a cocktail shaker and plenty of cracked ice. Choose a dry gin rather than an herbal-style gin. If you want an Oregon produced gin, consider Corvallis-based Vivacity Spirit's creation, Baker's Gin. Other classic dry gins include Bombay Sapphire, Tanqueray, Beefeater, Gordon's and Seagrams.

Combine the gin, heavy cream, egg white, lemon juice, lime juice, simple syrup and orange blossom water in a cocktail shaker. Add a generous amount (about 1 cup) of cracked ice and shake vigorously for at least one minute, preferably two. Strain into a chilled 12-ounce Collins glass, and add chilled club soda until an inch from the top.

Makes 1 6-ounce serving
