I love a White Lady cocktail. It is a classic cocktail made with gin, cointreau, fresh lemon juice and egg white. It is a member of the sidecar family, and this is my version of a White Lady Cocktail adding Fennel for a lovely Christmas touch!  I call it my Lady Fennel Sour. You have to plan ahead a little to make the fennel sugar syrup – but its super simple.
