Cotton-Tail Gimlet

It used to be that if you wanted a foam-topped cocktail, you needed to use an egg white or include a juice that held its structure after shaking. But boredom (there are only so many juices that hold a foam!) and a growing number of vegans had their way with this old-fashioned idea. Now, flavour-neutral (and vegan) foam enhancers are at the cutting edge of the fluff y cocktail trend, allowing inviting foams where none have gone before. The enhancers can be purchased at dedicated cocktail supply shops or online at cocktailemporium.com.

1. Muddle 1/4 cup (60 mL) chopped cucumber in a cocktail shaker without ice. Add 1 1/2 oz gin, 1/2 oz elderflower cordial, 3/4 oz lime juice and 1/3 dropper foam enhancer (we used Ms. Better’s Bitters Miraculous Foamer). Shake for 30 seconds, add 4 ice cubes and shake 15 seconds longer. Fine-strain into a coupe glass and garnish with a cucumber spear.
