Aquafaba is the leftover liquid from cooking beans. It’s often used as a substitute for egg whites due to its ability to hold foam when whipped. Here the liquid from canned chickpeas creates a frothy, creamy Clover Club, the classic raspberry-flavoured Gin Sour. For the best results, use the widely available Eden brand, which is organic and has no salt added.

2 oz gin
¾ oz liquid from canned chickpeas, preferably organic
¾ oz strained fresh lemon juice
½ oz Simple Syrup (recipe follows)
1 tsp (5 mL) good-quality raspberry jam

1. Place ingredients in a cocktail shaker. Hold tightly and shake vigorously for 30 seconds. Fill three-quarters with ice. Shake 15 seconds. Strain through sieve into chilled coupe. Serve immediately.

Makes 1 cocktail
