Okay, you’re bringing someone over for a date and you know their favorite drink is a Ramos Gin Fizz and, without thinking about it, you say you’ve got it. Sure, how hard could it be? You look it up. Gin, lemon and lime juice, heavy cream. Great, easy. Then you get to the last ingredient. One egg white.
What the hell? (If you’ve heard of or used egg whites before, stick with me. Stories are important, too.)
You’ve never worked with egg whites before. They might make someone sick when raw, right? Isn’t that what the warnings say? Possibly poisoning your date because you don’t know what you’re doing (even if it isn’t true) isn’t a great option, so you look for an alternative. Enter InstaFoam.
Developed by Addiction Mixology, InstaFoam is the world’s first all-natural, vegan, plant-based liquid that recreates the foam that would usually be produced by an egg white. Not only do you not have to worry about making a mess trying to separate the egg white from the yolk, but you’ll also avoid the chance of looking like an idiot if you do something wrong during the cocktail-making process.
For those with little fridge space, InstaFoam is also a big help—a four-ounce bottle the equivalent of around 500 egg whites. At $26.95 per bottle, this is a bargain, considering for the same price, you’d only get around 200 eggs on average.
The biggest thing when using InstaFoam is following the directions. Seriously. If you don’t, it isn’t going to work and, just as if you were using real egg whites, you’re going to look like an idiot.
If you’re not feeling like drinking—or you want to round out your datenight with even more foamy, frothy goodness, InstaFoam is good for adding texture and volume to non-alcoholic items like milkshakes and meringues. Not only can you woo your date with his or her favorite drink, but damn if producing a lemon meringue isn’t impressive on that same night.
Either way, boozy or not, InstaFoam is a solid investment for those that want to impress without having to work too hard.
