At Milk Street, we often talk about the importance of texture in our food—the interplay of creamy and crunchy, for example. These contrasts enhance our appreciation of a dish. It’s no different in cocktails, and Milk Street Editorial Director J.M. Hirsch has an Apple Cream Pie cocktail to prove it. Watch Hirsch demonstrate — and explain — how to use egg whites to impart a creamy texture in your beverages. If you’re dubious of using raw egg whites, listen to what he has to say, including his personal approach that should quell any fears. Then mix up your own Apple Cream Pie Cocktail. Cheers!
