So Fresh and So Green Cocktail

So Fresh and So Green Cocktail

Cucumber and sage play off gin’s botanical notes; egg whites make this creamy and light. Dangerously refreshing.


  • 5 ⅛-inch-thick cucumber slices
  • ½ ounce fresh lemon juice
  • ¼ ounce St-Germain (elderflower liqueur)
  • Aromatic bitters (such as Angostura)

Recipe Preparation

  • Muddle sage leaves, sugar, and 4 cucumber slices in a cocktail shaker. Add egg white, gin, lemon juice, simple syrup, St-Germain, and a dash of bitters. Cover and shake vigorously until egg white is very frothy, about 1 minute.

  • Fill shaker with ice and shake vigorously until outside is frosty, about 1 minute. Pour into a coupe glass and garnish with remaining cucumber slice.
