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


  • 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 olivemagazine.com 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.
