  • caster sugar 100g
  • oloroso sherry 120ml
  • lemon juice 60ml
  • egg white 1


  • Step 1

    Combine the sugar with 100ml water and gently bring to a simmer, stirring until the sugar is dissolved. Cool. This will make more sugar syrup than you need but will keep for a month in the fridge (visit for more cocktail recipes to use it up).

  • Step 2

    Put 40ml of the sugar syrup, the sherry, lemon juice and egg white in a cocktail shaker with ice, and shake vigorously for 30 seconds. Strain into 2 chilled coupe glasses.
