Good evening,

I have just added last weeks recipes from Something for the Weekend, even though I watched the show last week, we have been very busy at The Cocktail Store this week so not had chance to upload them.  Anyway this weekend Wayne Collins gave us a couple of fantastic forgotten Vodka cocktails.  So here they are…

Method

Place the lemon juice, egg white, sugar, vodka and triple sec into a cocktail shaker, with a handful of ice.  Shake well, then strain the cocktail into a coupette glass. Garnish with the angostura bitters.
