Our friends at Poor House recently shared one of their favorite cocktails with us: the Slow Gin Fizz. For the perfect cocktail, they suggest adding  an ounce or so of soda to a coupe glass. Add sloe gin, gin, lemon juice, simple syrup and egg white to the Mason Shaker (available at Poor House in the main market hall). Shake without ice, then add ice and shake until well-chilled. Strain into prepared coupe, observe the fluffy foam and enjoy!
