The St-Germain des Pres Cocktail

Courtesy Nico de Soto, for Experimental Beach, Ibiza, Spain

Rays all day, rage all night—that’s how Spain’s notorious party island rolls. Ibiza is known for its boho-glam vibe, and boasts plenty of bars, clubs and restaurants that exude an upscale feel alongside trendy food and drink offerings.

This cucumber-spiked cocktail from Experimental Beach, part of the Experimental Cocktail Club empire that extends to Paris and London, is a perfect example. An egg-white drink may seem like an unusual summer choice, but it gives luxurious froth to this cooling, sophisticated sipper, especially ideal as a sundowner.

Ingredients

1½ ounces Hendrick’s Gin
¾ ounce St-Germain elderflower liqueur
¾ ounces lime juice
1 teaspoon cucumber juice
1 egg white
Cucumber slice, for garnish

Directions

In cocktail shaker, add all ingredients. Shake to froth egg whites. Scoop in ice, and shake again to chill. Strain into coupe glass, and garnish with cucumber.
