Enjoy A Cracking Cocktail For British Egg Week

This week marks the start of British Egg Week (9th - 15th October). From cakes to cookies and quiche to pasta, the egg is prominent in so many treats, but it is underused and often forgotten in one main area - cocktails!

To celebrate here are a couple of quality cocktail recipes from Harrogate-based Slingsby Gin, which use egg whites to enhance the cocktail. Adding eggs to a shaken drink is a tradition that dates back more than a century, and an egg white or two gives a cocktail a rich, creamy texture and a beautiful foamy finish.
