The Corona Meditation - A collaboration with Anderson and Roe Piano Duo
Yield: 1 cocktail
1½ oz Freeland Spirits Gin
¾ oz fresh lemon juice
½ oz white tea syrup*
¼ oz St. Germain elderflower liqueur
½ oz egg white, lightly beaten (substitute with aquafaba for a vegan cocktail)
slice of lemon peel (optional)
*Prepare the white tea syrup by bringing six ounces of water to a boil. Add two bags of your favorite chamomile tea and steep for 5 minutes. Discard tea bags and add 3/4 cup of granulated sugar (or 12 ounces sugar by weight) and stir over heat until clear. Bottle and chill your syrup until ready for use.
Combine all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice, shake until very cold, then fine-strain the mixture into a chilled cocktail glass. Express the oils of a lemon peel over the surface of the drink, discard the peel, sip, and savor in bliss. 🧘🧘♀️
