Lemon Meringue Gin Fizz Royale (Recipe)

this is one of my favorite drinks to make for people because it seems way more elaborate than it really is and it’s balanced enough that even people who claim to not like gin, sweet drinks, or egg white drinks generally still end up enjoying it. it’s also fine without the lemon bitters, orange flower water, St. Germain, or the ‘royale’ part, but if you’re gonna make it you might as well include the boozy bubbles at the very least just to make it extra fun 🥂

Lemon Meringue Gin Fizz Royale 
1 oz. lemon juice
1 dash lemon bitters
2 drops orange flower water
½ oz. vanilla bean syrup
2 oz. gin
1 egg white

[shake]

Rinse a single old-fashioned glass with St. Germain

[shake with ice]

Strain into glass
Top with champagne
Garnish with a Peychaud’s bitters design

for a simpler recipe that doesn’t require the St. Germain, just add ¾ oz. of vanilla bean syrup instead of ½. eventually i’ll post a recipe for the syrup but really it’s dead simple so you could probably figure it out on your own.
