Eagle's Dream (Robert Hess)

Description
Gin, Crème de Violette, Egg white, Lemon juice, Sugar
Ingredients
1 12ozGin
12ozCrème de Violette
12ozLemon juice
1ozEgg white
12tSugar
Instructions
Dry shake, shake, strain into a chilled coupe
Notes
I prefer the addition of orange bitters to cut down on the "damp" aroma egg white can sometimes give a lighter drink
History
This is Robert Hess' preferred version, not the original that appears in the Savoy: 1 Teaspoonful of Powdered Sugar. The white of 1 Egg. The Juice of 1/4 Lemon. 1/4 Crème Yvette. 3/4 Dry Gin. I prefer Hess' recipe--it's not quite as sweet and the violette adds a nicer perfume
