Have you ever returned home from a wild night out with your friends, decided you needed a midnight snack, and tipsy-toed your way to the fridge, only to whip up the most random, yet glorious creation ever existed? Well the Libertine cocktail is kind of like that but better because not only does it involve the mixture of delicious ingredients like oranges, lemons, rosemary, and Balcones Baby Blue Whisky, but also 1 egg white. Yep. An egg. Creating the most divine, yet unexpected results, the Libertine is a fun way of letting the world know you aren’t afraid to try anything.

1.75 oz lemon
0.25 oz orange
1oz rosemary simple syrup (see syrups)
1 tsp maple
1 tsp orange marmalade
1 egg white
