Try this festive drink!

If you are like me, you are always on the lookout for a new and interesting drink to share with friends and family... this one is both! Cheers to a happy and healthy holiday!

Honey-Rum Fizz
Makes 2

  • ½ bunch mint leaves
  • ½ lime cut into wedges
  • 6 ounces gold rum
  • 3 ounces honey
  • 1 ½ limes zested and juiced
  • 2 egg whites, lightly beaten

Divide and muddle mint leaves into each glass, with a lime wedge or two, and set aside.  Place rum, honey, lime zest and juice into a shaker with ice and shake together.  Add the egg whites and continue to shake until the mixture becomes frothy.  Pour mixture into the prepared glasses. Topping each glass off with any remaining froth and serve.

What makes this cocktail special?
Egg whites in a cocktail. We thought it was weird the first time we had them, but it turned our to be an awesome layer of texture and makes a beautiful drink.  Once the egg white gets shaken, it unravels and transforms into a beautiful fluffy bed of foam. This is the reason we love this drink. We added honey for a hint of sweetness, and mint for freshness.
