Servings 1 drink


  • 1 1/2 ounces black vodka
  • 1/2 ounce simple syrup
  • 1/2 ounce lemon juice
  • Scant 1/2 ounce Créme de Cassis
  • 1 egg white


  • Combine all the ingredients except black vodka in a cocktail shaker WITHOUT ice for 10 seconds until frothy.
  • Add a few ice cubes and shake until chilled for an additional 10 seconds.
  • Strain into a glass and set aside.
  • Rinse cocktail shaker and fill with a handful of ice. Add black vodka and shake until chilled.
  • Pour the vodka into a chilled martini glass, then pour the frothy egg mixture over the vodka.
  • Enjoy!


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.
