1 egg white, 4 strawberries, 1 spoon of strawberry jam, 50ml of vodka, 20ml of St Germain (elderflower liquor), popping candy
In your cocktail shaker, crush three strawberries well to make a strawberry pulp. Using a different glass, separate the egg white from the yolk before adding the egg white to your shaker. The egg white does not add anything to the taste of the drink but gives it a lovely creamy texture. Add a healthy spoon of strawberry jam to the mix and crush the mixture a little more. Measure 50ml of your favourite vodka along with 20ml of St Germain elderflower liquor. Add cubed ice and shake the mixture vigorously until frothy. Strain the contents into a martini glass and sprinkle popping candy on the top. Slice your remaining strawberry and place it gently around the rim of the glass. Alternatively, make a small cut into the whole strawberry and simply place on the side of the glass.
