    Raw egg in cocktails might sound a bit crazy but it really improves the texture of a drink. It’s actually been around for over 100 years and is famed for it’s scientific ability to react with acids to create an incredible, luxurious foam. As you mention, it’s something that people are wary of but it adds no additional flavour and is something that has to be tried at least once. Salmonella is always a background thought but it is incredibly rare in Britain and if good quality eggs from reputable farmers are used there is little chance of illness.
