The blue hue of this cocktail from Afghan Kitchen comes from Victoria Distillers Empress 1908 gin and is inspired by the six deep blue lakes in Afghanistan.

• 2 oz Empress 1908 Gin

• 1 oz fresh lemon juice

• 1 oz Giffard passionfruit syrup

• 1 egg white or 1 dropper of vegan foamer

• Optional garnish: Dried butterfly pea flower

Place all ingredients (except garnish) in a cocktail shaker without ice and shake well (dry shake) until very foamy. Add ice, shake again rigorously for at least 15 seconds, then strain into a chilled coupe class. If you like, garnish with a dried butterfly pea flower. Serves 1.
