How to Make a White Lady Cocktail

The White Lady Cocktail is a classic gin drink made with gin, triple sec, and lemon juice. Its smooth, citrusy taste has made it a beloved cocktail recipe for nearly a century.

You'll need these ingredients:

1-2: Add the gin, triple sec, lemon juice, simple syrup and egg white to an empty cocktail shaker. 

3-4:  Shake well without ice - this is called a dry shake. Then add ice to the shaker. 

5-6: Shake again until well chilled and strain into a cocktail glass. 

7: Garnish with a lemon twist. 

Raw egg whites are generally pretty safe in cocktails.  For extra precaution, you can buy pasteurized egg whites in a carton. 

If that still doesn't interest you or you want a vegan option, you can substitute 2-3 tablespoons of the liquid from canned chickpeas.
