Lemon Meringue Martini
Makes 4

Ingredients

4 tbsp Lemon curd
100ml Limencello if you don't have this, you can replace this with an equal amount of vodka
100ml Vodka
2 freshly squeezed lemon juice
Ice cubes

Swiss Meringue
3 egg whites
Pinch of salt
300g caster sugar

4 chilled serving glasses

Here's How

Place the lemon curd, Limencello, vodka and ice cubes in a shaker and shake to combine.
Taste and add more lemon juice if you like the cocktail to be more tart in flavour (I personally prefer this)
Shake once more to combine the lemon juice.
Strain this into 4 chilled serving glasses evenly
For the meringue, bring a pan of water to a gentle boil
Place a bowl on top of the pan and add the egg whites and sugar
Whisk the ingredients together, until it forms a soft fluffy meringue that holds its shape
Pipe the meringue on top of the lemon cocktail.
With a blow torch, just brown the edges of the meringue
