DIY Tuesday: Meringue Cocktail Toppers
Step #1: Put on a sparkly blue vintage ring and paint your nails this GORGEOUS shade of purple!
Step #2: Wrap your arms in vintage blue satin glass beads!
Step #3: Take two eggs and separate the whites from the yolks, then beat the whites at high speed. Add 1/8 teaspoon of cream of tartar and gradually add 1/2 cup sugar. Continue to beat.
Step #4: Once your egg whites form stiff peaks, your meringue is ready!
Step #5: Place a large piece of parchment paper onto a baking sheet and draw out 6 circles (we used a mason jar lid). Make sure the circles are smaller than the rim of your martini glasses!
Step #6: Spoon meringue mixture into a pastry bag with a large round tip (or a ziplock bag with one 1/2 inch corner cut off). Squeeze the meringue mixutre into circular shapes on your parchment paper.
Step #7: Bake at 275 degrees for 30 minutes to one hour. The longer you bake them the browner and crisper they will get!
Now for the fun part! Float them on top of our Lemon Meringue Pie Drop cocktails!
