Sendero Trail

Bright, floral and tart, the Sendero Trail is Tommy Klus's alternative to the classic pisco sour. First he shakes the ingredients without ice (a.k.a. dry-shaking) to emulsify the egg white and give the drink an airy texture. He then shakes the cocktail again with ice to chill it. Slideshow:  Reinvented Classic Cocktails
