Mixology Monday: Apple Blow Fizz

apple blow fizzOnce every month cocktail fanatics band together to create a booze-soaked collection of recipes for Mixology Monday.  Our hosts for this month are the guys at eGullet, who chose “Dizzy Dairy” as the theme.  From Chris Amirault of eGullet –

Any drink using a dairy product is fair game: milk, cream, eggs, butter, cheese, yogurt, curds, you name it. Given the importance of dairy products in drinks dating back centuries, there are lots of opportunities for digging through vintage receipts for a taste of the past, and as always innovation is highly encouraged.

I’ve long enjoyed adding egg whites to cocktails as a means of justifying my drinking.  After all, who can’t benefit from some extra protein?

The Apple Blow Fizz is a cocktail that combines an egg white, fresh lemon juice and apple brandy.  It’s a veritable cornucopia of health foods, all rolled into one.
