In a cocktail shaker combine all other ingredients with ice. Shake thoroughly until cold, and strain into a chilled coupe glass. Now spoon your green whipped egg whites into a plastic bag, cut off the corner, and pipe the foam in a spiral onto the top of your drink. Sprinkle with peppermint candy dust.

It’s 100 degrees out 🔥, time for a Julep. In your tin combine 2 dashes of our Lime Bitters, ½ oz simple syrup and 6 mint leaves. Muddle lightly, then add crushed ice about midway up the glass. Pour in 2 oz bourbon or rye whiskey, then stir gently with a straw. Add crushed ice up above the rim of the glass and garnish with a mint sprig and if your feeling extra fancy, some powdered sugar, cheers.
