The Carolina Cocktail is November 21st Drink of the Day!! - Shaun the Bartender : Shaun the Bartender

The Carolina Cocktail is November 21st Drink of the Day!!

November 21, 2012 | By |

North Carolina would become part of the original thirteen states on this date in 1789, when it became the 12th state of the United States.  To celebrate this, how about a drink that shares it’s name.

The Carolina Cocktail is an interesting cream cocktail that has egg whites as part of its recipe.  The egg whites, when shaken properly, gives you a nice frothy top to the cocktail and gives it a smooth texture when going down.  A must try!

Carolina Cocktail

2 1/2 oz. Tequila

1 1/2 oz. Cream

1 Tsp. Vanilla Extract

1 Tsp. Grenadine

Egg White

 

Method:  Pour all ingredients into a shaker with ice.  Shake vigorously for no less than ten seconds.  Strain into a cocktail glass.  For an additional touch to the finished drink, sprinkle some cinnamon on the top of the drink.
