    We know there is a creamy and frothy foam topping on Tequila Sour, but if you want to make the frothy foam thicker so that your drink looks more presentable, then egg white is all you need! Here is a trick for you:

    • We know that egg white has been used in drinks for decades because the foam of egg white adds a fun, frothy texture on top and enhances the drink’s richness and flavor. So to add a thick frothy foam layer on the top of the drink, shake the egg white with all ingredients first and don’t add ice in it. After shaking it well, add ice and again shake it properly. This trick is called Dry Shake. This trick cools down the drink and strengthens a strong foam!
