1/2 ounce simple syrup
1 egg white
1 ounce heavy cream
1 dash orange bitters or 1/2 teaspoon orange flower water (A. Monteux in a little blue bottle comes recommended)
about 2 ounces of seltzer (optional)

Put your serving glass and the bottle of your whipped cream maker in the freezer to chill.

Also consider: infusing the liquor with apples: http://www.bonappetit.com/recipe/honey-bourbon-toddy#recipe-ingr... (or subbing in Calvados). Take it a step further with mint and absinthe: http://www.bonappetit.com/recipe/castle-dip

Bees Knees

2 oz Gin
¾ oz fresh lemon juice
¾ oz honey syrup (use equal parts honey and warm water)

The honey and lemon were originally meant to mask the funk of this prohibition-era, bathtub-gin cocktail, but it turns out they're also just good ideas. More history: http://www.pbs.org/food/recipes/bees-knees-cocktail/
