Cocktail Colin says:

4/5

The Ace cocktail merges the botanical notes of gin with the sweetness of grenadine and the luxurious texture of cream and egg white, crafting a velvety affair that balances decadence with refreshing clarity. While unusual, the combination of dairy with gin showcases a bold confidence in flavor pairing, making this drink a creamy delight for those who admire a cocktail that dares to be different.

FAQ's

FAQ

What is the best type of gin to use in an Ace cocktail?

The best type of gin for an Ace cocktail is usually a London Dry Gin due to its clear, crisp, and juniper-forward flavor profile. However, feel free to experiment with other types of gin to suit your taste preferences.

INGREDIENT_SUBSTITUTIONS

Can I use a different type of cream in the Ace cocktail?

Yes, you can use different types of cream in the Ace cocktail. While heavy cream is commonly used for its rich texture, you can opt for half-and-half for a lighter version or use non-dairy alternatives like coconut cream or almond milk creamer for a vegan option.

FAQ

How do I achieve the perfect froth with the egg white in the Ace cocktail?

To achieve the perfect froth with the egg white in the Ace cocktail, ensure that you shake the cocktail vigorously for at least 10-15 seconds.

Is there a non-alcoholic version of the Ace cocktail?

GARNISHING_TIPS
