Batilda paulista (brazilian rum with lemon juice)

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2.00 teaspoon Egg whites
2.00 tablespoon Sugar, superfine
2.00 ounce Cachaca (brazilian rum)
1.00 ounce Lemon juice
4.00 Ice cubes
1.00 Lemon slice

1. Combine the egg white and sugar in a mixing glass, and stir with a bar spoon to dissolve the sugar. Add the cachaca, lemon juice and ice cubes. Place a bar shaker on top of the mixing glass and, grasping the glass and shaker firmly together with both hands, shake them vigorously 9 or 10 times. Remove the shaker, place a strainer on top of the glass and pour into a chilled old-fashioned glass. With a sharp knife, slit the lemon slice from the peel just to the center, and use the slit to hold the slice on the rim of the glass.
