2 oz Dovetail
.75 oz Simple Syrup
.75 oz Fresh Lemon Juice
1 Egg White
.5 oz Red Wine (a fruity one; Nic used California Cabernet)
Add Dovetail, fresh lemon juice and simple syrup into the small side of a Boston Shaker set. Then add egg white and 2 1.5 inch ice cubes to the large side of a Boston Shaker set. Flip the small side of the shaker into the large side and press hard on the top to ensure a seal. Shake vigorously until the ice is melted- you will be able to tell from the sound.
Open with the large shaker on the bottom, then strain with a Hawthorne strainer into Old Fashioned glass filled with ice. It should be frothy. Pour red wine into jigger, and quickly pour into the middle of the drink. Once the drink settles for minute, the red wine should float below the egg white froth and above the base of the drink.
