Velvety smooth, a big hit

Velvety smooth, a big hit among guests. 1/2 an egg white is enough (and this makes it easier if you're mixing two at once).

The result is quite a few ounces so use a larger coupe/cocktail glass or pour a splash for yourself. You definitely don't want to risk any overflow as the olive oil makes everything slippery and sticks around.
