  • ½ ounce lemon juice
  • Scant ½ ounce Créme de Cassis
  • 1 egg white
Instructions
  1. Combine all the ingredients except black vodka in a cocktail shaker WITHOUT ice for 10 seconds until frothy.
  2. Add a few ice cubes and shake until chilled for an additional 10 seconds.
  3. Strain into a glass and set aside.

  5. Pour the vodka into a chilled martini glass, then pour the frothy egg mixture over the vodka.

Notes
Notes: Adding the black vodka after shaking the egg white helps keep a more clean, white foam for the top of the drink. The Créme de Cassis may create a slightly rosey color to the foam, but it won't be as noticeable.
