ocean shore

1/2 jigger Sloe Gin (1 oz Atxa Patxaran)
1/2 jigger Gin (1 oz Hayman's Navy Dock)
1 spoon Orgeat (1/2 oz)
5 drop Lemon (1/2 oz Juice)
1/2 Egg White (1 Egg White)

Shake once without ice and once with ice, and strain into a cocktail glass. I added a lemon twist.
Two Fridays ago for my post-shift cocktail hour, I reached for Boothby's 1934 World Drinks and How to Mix Them. There, I spotted the Ocean Shore which reminded me of a soda-less Sloe Gin Fizz as well as the Berry Fizz to some extent. In the glass, it offered a lemon and nutty aroma from the twist and the housemade orgeat, respectively. Next, the creamy sip shared berry and lemon flavors, and the swallow offered gin, nutty, berry, and coffee notes.
