The Cafe de Paris is an old-school sort of cocktail, featuring a couple of strong flavors diluted by cream and an egg white. If you’re concerned about using raw eggs these days, you can use an egg substitute product instead.
This drink features gin with a touch of anisette, but the addition of heavy cream and the egg white makes less overwhelming than you might normally expect. This one can take some getting used to, but it’s lovely when you want just a little bit of sustenance in your drink.
