The story of the million dollar cocktail says that it was created by Ngiam Tong Boon, a Singapore mixologist of the early 20th century who also created the famous Singapore sling.

Because this uses only a dash of egg white, it is best to make a few drinks at once to avoid wasting the rest of the egg.

What You'll Need

  • 1 ounce gin
  • 1 teaspoon sweet vermouth
  • 1 teaspoon dry vermouth
  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice
  • Dash egg white
  • Dash Angostura bitters

How to Make It

  1. Pour the gin and vermouths into a cocktail shaker with ice cubes.
  2. Add the pineapple juice and a dash of both the egg white and Angostura bitters.
  3. Shake vigorously to froth up the egg white.
  4. Strain into a chilled highball glass.
