The word cocktail was first coined on 13 May 1806 – which is why we celebrate world cocktail day on that specific day – when a New York tabloid defined the word cocktail as “a stimulating liquor, composed of spirits of any kind, sugar, water and bitters”.
ANGOSTURA® aromatic bitters continues to be the essential ingredient in some of the world’s most famous and best-loved cocktails.
What better way to celebrate World Cocktail Day than by turning your hand to mixing these simple and impressive libations at home?
30ml ANGOSTURA® aromatic bitters
30ml Lemon juice
30ml Demerara simple syrup
1 Egg white
Add all the ingredients to a shaker and dry shake (to dry shake is to shake without ice). Then add ice and shake again. Use a double strainer to pour mixture into a chilled coupe glass.
