Servings 1 cocktail


  • 2 ounces gin
  • ¾ ounce cointreau (or other orange liqueur)
  • ¾ ounce lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon luxardo (or other maraschino liqueur)
  • 3 dashes cherry bitters (or whatever bitters you wish)
  • 2 dashes simple syrup (optional, to taste)
  • ½ egg white (1 is fine, but I use 1 full egg white for 2 cocktails.)
  • 1 maraschino cherry or lemon disc


  • Combine all the ingredients except the garnish and mix vigorously until foamy. (If making in batches, buzz with a hand blender. If mixing by hand, put the egg white in first and whisk it till it's foamy.)
  • Add ice to chill. Drink or strain over ice or into a chilled coup. Garnish with a cherry or lemon disc.


Obviously, if all you have is gin and lemon and orange liqueur, a white lady is an excellent cocktail. The addition of Luxardo is meaningful, though. The above quantity is for one cocktail but I'm making them for four people tonight. I use a Pyrex measuring glass and pour in a cup of gin, then add 3 ounces each of the lemon and cointreau, bitters and two dashes simply syrup (because the Cointreau isn't quite sweet enough to balance the lemon). I then add the egg white and buzz with a hand blender. I fill it with ice to chill the cocktail and pour into four glasses over a big ice cube.
