  • 2 ounces gin (I used Nolet's Dry Gin)
  • 1 1/4 ounce fresh lemon juice
  • 1 large egg white (or 1 ounce pasteurized liquid egg whites)
  • 3/4 ounce Spiced Pear Simple Syrup
  • 1-2 ounces club soda
  • Star anise for garnish
  • Fill a cocktail shaker with ice.
  • Add gin, lemon juice, egg white, and Spiced Pear Simple Syrup (recipe) to cocktail shaker.
  • Replace lid and shake for 15 seconds or until shaker becomes frosty.
  • Strain into cocktail glass.
  • Top with club soda, garnish with star anise, and serve.
