Today we test methods for making a Vegan Alternative to Egg White Cocktails. Complete with a blind tasting!
Any time I make a sour with egg white I am bombarded with questions on how to achieve the same effect without using actual egg whites. So many people who are either vegan or just not into consuming raw egg white have been asking if an alternative exists. Well, I am happy to report that not only does an alternative exist, but several do and we test them in this episode! Today we make three different versions of “Sour Style” cocktails using alternatives to egg whites/, What will be the result? Will we fail or succeed? and most importantly How Do They Taste?
