Our friend Gillian recently gave us the most wonderful gift, homemade quince spirit in a beautiful jar. We searched the internet for cocktail recipes making use of this peculiar ingredient, but didn’t really find the perfect one. Instead we decided to create a cocktail of our own, and of course we named it “Queen(ce) Gillian”. It’s an amazingly fruity cocktail, but still there is a nice bitterness going on in the background thanks to the Obstbrand and the quince itself. The egg white is important to create a nice white foam, floating on top of the cocktail.
What’s in it
1 oz quince spirit (ours is based on vodka)
1 oz apple and pear German obstbrand
0,5 oz Green Chartreuse
0,5 oz lemon juice
0,25 oz simple syrup
Dry shake all ingredients, then shake again with ice. The more you shake, the thicker the foam!
