1 whole Honey Crisp apple, core removed*
Egg white separated from 1 large egg
1 oz amaretto
1 oz calvados
1 oz lemon juice
2 oz soda water
4 1-inch ice cubes
apple fan (for garnish)
Place first five ingredients plus ice into a blender and blend on a low setting, gradually increasing speed until the ice has dissolved. Put soda water into a tall glass, then add the blender contents slowly to mix through the soda—done right, a frothy head that rises above the rim of the glass should form. Garnish with an apple fan.
*Tip: Store-bought apple juice is no substitute for the real thing and your drinks will not taste the same if you choose to use it. Please experiment responsibly!
