Strawberry Basil Sour

This is my first aquafaba foam attempt and I’m pretty happy with the result. I think I could have gotten a better foam if i wasn’t so impatient and kept the dry shake going longer, but I’m excited to finally see and taste this egg white alternative in one of my creations. I didn’t taste it in the end product. Most people I know are freaked out by the idea of raw egg white in cocktails, so it’s good to have options! Have you tried aquafaba in cocktails or cooking? What did you think?

Shake without ice for a few minutes to build the foam. Add ice and shake until chilled. Double strain into a chilled coupe. Garnish with chamomile and berries.
