Bay Leaf Cocktail
1 large or 2 small fresh bay leaves---don't even think of using dried ones
1 heaping teaspoon natural sugar or "sugar in the raw"
2 ounces vodka
1 ounce fresh lime juice
1 egg white, beaten
1 ounce sugar water.
With a mortar and pestle grind the bay leaf with the sugar until the bay leaf is almost powdered. Place in a cocktail shaker with the vodka, lime juice, egg white, and sugar water. Shake with ice cubes and strain into an ice filled highball glass.
