For those of us who use pasteurized egg-white in our cocktails at work; it can
be very frustrating to dry shake then shake with ice and yet still end up with

1. Dry Shake (Shake a cocktail without ice, to whi

2. Shake the same cocktail with ice.
3. Fine strain into the empty half of a Boston shaker (preferably an all-metal
4. Dry Shake Vigorously.
5. Pour unstrained into your chilled cocktail glass.
6. Foam Galore!
Scenting the top of the foam with an orange or lemon twist is recommended;
which is what I do with my Whisky Sours.
It may sound like a lot of extra work, but it is worth it if you want a foamy masterpiece.
