Hot Pink Handgun


2 ounces cognac
1 teaspoon orgeat syrup
1/2 ounce lemon juice
5 large or 8 small raspberries
1 egg whites
1 teaspoon superfine sugar

Glass Type: cocktail glass

Put the lemon juice into a cocktail shaker and stir in the sugar. Add the other ingredients and, before adding ice, shake viciously but briefly to activate foam. Add ice, shake again hard (to smash up the berries), and double strain into a chilled cocktail glass. (To double strain, simultaneously use a Hawthorne strainer — the one with the spring — in the shaker and a Julep strainer — the big spoon with all the little holes — over the glass, to catch the raspberry seeds and pulp.)
